Product Summary for Human PDGF R beta PE‑conjugated Antibody

Immunogen

Human skin fibroblast membrane extracts

Specificity

Detects human PDGF R beta in Western blots. Specificity has been confirmed in binding studies using several different cell lines (1, 2) and by its ability to immunoprecipitate PDGF R beta-subunit complexed with 125I‑PDGF-BB (3). It does not recognize the PDGF R alpha‑subunit.Detects the PDGF R beta-subunit of human and primate species (monkey and baboon) but not the rat or mouse receptors. Its ability to bind to receptors from other species has not been tested.

Background: PDGF R beta

PDGF is a major serum mitogen that can exist as a homo or hetero-dimeric protein consisting of disulfide-linked PDGF-A and PDGF-B chains. The PDGF-AA, PDGF‑BB and PDGF-AB isoforms have been shown to bind to two distinct cell surface PDGF receptors with different affinities. Where as PDGF R alpha binds all three PDGF isoforms with high affinity, PDGF R beta binds PDGF-BB only with high-affinity. Both PDGF R alpha and PDGF R beta are members of the class III subfamily of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTK) that also includes the receptors for M-CSF, SCF and Flt-3 Ligand. All class III RTKs are characterized by the presence of five immunoglobulin‑like domains in their extracellular region and a split kinase domain in their intracellular region. PDGF binding induces receptor homo- and hetero‑dimerization and signal transduction. The expression of the alpha and beta receptors is independently regulated in various cell types. Recombinant soluble PDGF R beta binds PDGF with high affinity and is a potent PDGF antagonist (4).
