Stability and Reconstitution

Stability and Storage Lyophilized proteins are stable for 1 year from the date of receipt if stored between (-20oC) and (-80oC). Upon reconstitution we recommend that the solution can be stored at (4oC) for short term or at (-20oC) to (-80oC) for long term. Repeated freeze thaw cycles should be avoided with reconstituted products.
Reconstitution Briefly centrifuge the vial before opening. It is recommended to reconstitute the protein in sterile 10 mM HOAc containing 0.1% endotoxin-free recombinant human serum albumin (HSA).

Product Description

Animal-free Recombinant Human PDGFbb is a growth factor that promotes blood vessel formation, mitogenesis, chemotaxis, etc. The PDGF family members (four homodimers and one heterodimer) are secreted, disulfide-linked dimeric glycoproteins that regulate their cellular functions through interaction with PDGFR receptors. PDGFbb is synthesized, stored, and released by alpha granules of platelets. It is also known as PDGF-2, becaplermin, or GDGF. Dysregulation in PDGF signaling has been shown to be associated with tumorigenesis and progression of cancer. Recombinant PDGFbb is used in treatment of chronic ulcers and to speed healing in surgical procedures.

Background

PDGFbb is a member of the platelet-derived growth family factor. Four members of this family are mitogenic factors for cells of mesenchymal origin, and they are characterized by a motif of eight cysteines. PDGFbb is required for normal proliferation and recruitment of pericytes and vascular smooth muscle cells in the central nervous system, skin, and placenta among others. PDGFbb plays a role in blood vessel development. It also implements its role in wound healing (PMID: 29266203; 28851707; 28556368).
