Preparation and Storage

  • Stability and Storage

    Shipped at 4°C. Upon delivery aliquot and store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid repeated freeze / thaw cycles.

    Preservative: None
    No additives

    This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.

  • ReconstitutionIt is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized PDGF AB in sterile 18Mohm/cm H2O at not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

  • RelevancePlatelet Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) is a potent mitogen for a wide range of cell types including fibroblasts, smooth muscle and connective tissue. PDGF, which is composed of a dimer of two chains joined by disulphide bonds, termed the A chain and B chain, can be present as AA or BB homodimers or as an AB heterodimer. Human PDGF-AB is a 25.5 kDa heterodimer protein consisting of a 13.3 kDa A chain and a 12.2 kDa B chain.
