|Mouse anti Human CD140a, clone 16A1 recognizes CD140a also known as platelet-derived growth factor receptor alpha (PDGFR-α), is a 180 kDa single pass type I transmembrane glycoprotein and a member of the receptor tyrosine kinases (Westermark 1995).
CD140a is largely expressed by mesenchymal cells and plays a key role in embryonic organogenesis and development via regulation of differentiation, migration pathways. (Hoch & Sorian 2003). Upregulation of this receptor has also been associated with various diseases including atherosclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and nephritis (Heldin & Westermark 1999).
Upon binding of one of its ligands, PDGF-AA, PDGF-BB or PDGF-AB, the receptor forms either a homo- or hetero-dimer with CD140b. This induces autophosphorylation of the receptors intracellular tyrosine residues which activates downstream signaling pathways such as Ras-MAPK, PI3K and PLC-ϒ (Andrae et al. 2008).
This clone 16A1 has been used in immunocytochemistry experiments to examine the co-localization of CD140a with tryptophan hydroxylase-2 in the myenteric plexus (Coyle et al. 2016).
