Anti-PDGFR BETA (CD140b), Clone RM303


Platelet derived growth factor receptors (PDGFR) are cell surface tyrosine receptors that act as a receptor for the platelet derived growth factors family. Alpha and Beta are two different subunits for PDGFR. They regulate many processes such as cell proliferation, cellular differentiation, cell growth, development, and play a major role in many diseases such as cancers. PDGFR beta has been implicated in establishing blood vessel formation and early hematopoeisis. Autocrine activation of PDGF signaling pathways is involved in certain gliomas, sarcomas, and leukemias. Up regulation of PDGFR beta has been observed on endothelial cells of vessels which vascularize the tumor. These findings can contribute in explaining the mechanisms that contribute to angiogenesis and vessel growth in of tumors and normal tissues
