Recombinant PDGF Porcine
For research use only
Platelet-derived growth factor, known as PDGF, is a potent mitogen for a wide range of cell types including fibroblasts, smooth muscle & connective tissue. It plays a key role in embryonic development, cell proliferation, cell migration, and angiogenesis.
Porcine PDGF consists primarily of PDGF homodimers and it has approximately 70-80% homology with the B-chain of human PDGF. Human and porcine PDGF bind to the same receptors and produce the same spectrum of biological effects.
Our recombinant porcine PDGF growth factor is produced in non-GMO insects, specifically in Trichoplusia ni (cabbage moth) with the Baculovirus Expression Vector System (BEVS).
