Akron’s Recombinant Human Platelet Derived Growth Factor-AA (rHu PDGF-AA) product is manufactured following all relevant cGMP guidelines for ancillary materials. Akron’s rHu PDGF-AA is a dimeric, approximately 29 kDa, glycosylated growth factor analog expressed in Yeast. The lyophilized product is packaged into vials and available in 1 mg aliquots.
In vivo, PDGF-AA is part of the PDGF family, consisting of various dimers that have similar functions. PDGFs play an important role during embryonic development, stimulating and controlling the populations of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and their progenitors. They have also been shown to affect osteogenic differentiation and proliferation of oligodendrocytes. PDGF functions have overlap with vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGFs) and epidermal growth factor (EGF). It has been used to study and develop technology in tissue regeneration and wound repair. Akron’s cGMP-compliant rHu PDGF-AA can be used to promote the ex vivo expansion of MSCs and various mesenchymal progenitor cells.
