for Recombinant PDGFRa proteinBackground

PDGFRα (Platelet Derived Growth Factor Receptor alpha) is a tyrosine protein kinase that acts as a cell-surface receptor for PDGFA, PDGFB and PDGFC and plays an essential role in the regulation of embryonic development, cell proliferation, survival and chemotaxis. PDGFRα may promote or inhibit cell proliferation and migration, and plays an important role in the differentiation of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells. It is required for normal embryonic development of several tissue and organ types and plays a role in cell migration and chemotaxis in wound healing and platelet activation. Binding of its ligands - homodimers or heterodimers of PDGFA and PDGFB leads to the activation of several signaling cascades.

for Recombinant PDGFRa proteinApplication Notes

Recombinant PDGFRα is suitable for kinase assays and Western blot. The molecular weight of the protein is ~87.851 kDa. The activity of the protein is ~ 10 pmol/µg min. Recommended kinase reaction conditions: 60 mM HEPES-NaOH, pH 7.5, 3 mM MgCl2, 3 mM MnCl2, 3 µM Na-orthovanadate, 1.2 mM DTT, ATP (variable), 2.5 µg/50 µl PEG20.000, Substrate: PolyAEKY 2.5 µg / 50 µl, Recombinant PDGFRα: 200 ng/50 µl. Kinase activity may vary depending on the substrate and reaction conditions used.

for Recombinant PDGFRa proteinProtein Details

Recombinant human PDGFRα protein was produced using baculovirus infected Sf9 cells. The protein was made against amino acids Q551-L1089, accession number NM_006206 and N-terminally fused to GST-Factor Xa cleavage site. Purified by GSH-agarose affinity purification.
