Description

Description

The αR1 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the human platelet derived growth factor (PDGF) receptor α (PDGFRα), also known as CD140a. CD140a is a 170 kDa single transmembrane glycoprotein expressed on fibroblasts, smooth muscle cells, glial cells and chondrocytes. PDGF receptors α and β are single glycoproteins with intracellular tyrosine kinase domains. They are structurally similar to the M-CSF receptor and CD117 (c-kit). Their ligand, PDGF, is a mitogen for connective tissue cells and glial cells. PDGF plays a role in wound healing and it also acts as a chemoattractant for fibroblasts, smooth muscle cells, glial cells, monocytes and neutrophils. Functional PDGF is secreted in disulfide linked, homodimeric or heterodimeric forms comprised of A or B chains (PDGFAA, PDGF-BB or PDGF-AB). Binding of divalent PDGF induces receptor dimerization with three possible forms: αα, αβ, ββ. The PDGFRα subunit binds both PDGF A and B chains, whereas the PDGFRβ subunit binds only PDGF B chains. Although both receptor subunits can stimulate mitogenic responses, only the β subunit can induce chemotaxis. The αR1 antibody is specific for PDGFRα and does not crossreact with PDGFR β . It immunoprecipitates human, monkey, rabbit, pig, dog and cat PDGFR α . It does not recognize hamster, rat or mouse PDGFR α .
