Description:

Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) is a member of the protein family which includes vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGF), important regulators of cell growth, proliferation, and angiogenesis. PDGF is proteolytically processed from a pre/pro protein to generate PDGF subunit B, which can homodimerize, or can heterodimerize with the related PDGF subunit A. The PDGF dimer binds the cell surface receptor tyrosine kinases PDGFR-α and PDGFR-β.
PDGF is a mitogenic peptide growth hormone carried in the alpha-granules of platelets, released when platelets adhere to traumatized tissues. Connective tissue cells near the traumatized region respond by initiating the process of replication. The synthesis of PDGF can be induced by IL-1, IL-6, TNF-α, TGF-β and EGF.
