CD140a antibody | 35248 (57/20)
PDGF is a major serum mitogen that can exist as a homo- or heterodimeric protein consisting of disulphide-linked PDGF-A and PDGF-B chains (Hart et al. 1990). The PDGF-AA, PDGF-BB and PDGF-AB isoforms have been shown to bind to two distinct cell surface PDGF receptors with different affinities. Whereas PDGF receptor alpha binds all three isoforms with high affinity, PDGF R beta binds PDGF-BB and AB but not PDGF-AA (Hart et al. 1988). Both PDGF receptor alpha and beta are members of the class III subfamily of receptor tyrosine kinases (Westermark 1995).
Mouse anti Human CD140a antibody, clone 35248 has been reported for use in functional studies. The ND50 was determined as 0.2-0.6 μg/ml for blocking 10 ng/ml of PDGF-AA biological activity on a quiescent confluent cell culture of human WS1 cells.
