Immunogen Mouse PDGF Receptor alpha chain
Clone APA5
Isotype IgG2a, kappa
Characteristics 1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
Purification Purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
Purity Purified
Alternative Name CD140a
Background The APA5 antibody reacts with Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) Receptor alpha chain (CD140a, PDGFR-a), a receptor tyrosine kinase which is widely expressed on cells of mesenchymal origin in the embryo and adult and on several other cell types during embryonic development, but not on hematopoietic cells. PDGFR-a binds to PDGF A and B chains, in contrast to PDGFR-b, which binds only to the PDGF B chain. Biologically active PDGF is a disulphide-linked dimer, forming the AA, AB, and BB isoforms. Binding to PDGF Receptor induces the formation of receptor dimers (aa, ab, or bb), autophosphorylation, and internalization. The mAb APA5 has been demonstrated to block binding of PDGF-AA to PDGFR-a-expressing cells in vitro and to block some PDGF-mediated developmental events in vivo.
Synonyms: PDGF Receptor alpha chain
Research Area CD Antigens, Surface Receptors of Immune Cells
Application Notes This antibody has been tested by immunofluorescent staining (Less or equal than 1 µg/million cells) with flow cytometric analysis and immunohistochemical staining of acetone-fixed frozen sections (0.5 - 2.5 µg/ml) to assure specificity and reactivity. Other reported applications include western blot analysis, ELISA, immunohistochemical staining of paraffin-embedded sections, inhibition of ligand binding, and in vivo blocking of PDGF action.
