Regulatory Status Legend
Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) is a potent mitogen for cells of mesenchymal origin and exerts its effects by binding to the PDGF receptor (PDGFR), a transmembrane protein tyrosine kinase. PDGFR is composed of PDGFRα (CD140a) and/or PDGFRβ (CD140b) polypeptides. Both PDGF and PDGFR consist of subunits that form homo- or heterodimers with varying specificities: PDGF-AA binds only to αα PDGFR, PDGF-AB binds to both αα and αβ PDGFR, and PDGF-BB binds to all three PDGFRs. Ligand binding induces dimerization and activation of the receptor. Upon activation, CD140b is phosphorylated at multiple tyrosine sites and, in turn, an intracellular phosphorylation cascade is initiated. PDGFR localizes primarily to membrane invaginations termed caveolae, compartments that are enriched in several of its downstream effectors, including phosphatidylinositol 3'-kinase, Src, and phospholipase C-γ (PLC-γ).
The J105-412 monoclonal antibody recognizes the phosphorylated tyrosine 1021 (pY1021) in the C-terminal noncatalytic region of CD140b, which interacts primarily with PLC-γ. The orthologous phosphorylation site in mouse PDGFRβ is Y1020.
Alexa Fluor® 647 conjugates are highly photostable and remain fluorescent over a broad pH range. The excitation and emission maxima are nearly identical to those of APC. However, APC tends to be brighter while Alexa Fluor® 647 is more optimal for intracellular applications. This fluorochrome exhibits uncommon photostability, making it an ideal choice for use in fluorescence microscopy. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, APC and Alexa Fluor® 647 cannot be used simultaneously.

Preparation and Storage
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 647 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 647 was removed.
- This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
- Alexa Fluor® 647 fluorochrome emission is collected at the same instrument settings as for allophycocyanin (APC).
