Recombinant PDGFRB (557-1106) protein
PDGFRB (Platelet Derived Growth Factor Receptor Beta), a tyrosine-protein kinase that acts as cell surface receptor for homodimeric PDGFB and PDGFD and for heterodimers formed by PDGFA and PDGFB, PDGFRB plays an essential role in the regulation of embryonic development, cell proliferation, survival, differentiation, chemotaxis and migration and plays an essential role in blood vessel development by promoting proliferation, migration and recruitment of pericytes and smooth muscle cells to endothelial cells. PDGFRB plays a role in the migration of vascular smooth muscle cells and the formation of neointima at vascular injury sites.
