Platelet-derived growth factor C (PDGF-C) is a potent mitogen and chemoattractant for cells of mesenchymal origin. The binding of PDGF-C growth factor to its receptor elicits a variety of cellular responses. PDGF-C appears to be involved in the three stages of wound healing: inflammation, proliferation and remodeling. A lower molecular weight form (around 43 kDa) of PDGF-C is present in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma.
