Description:

Platelet-derived growth factor receptor-β (PDGFR-β), CD140b, is one of two receptors for platelet-derived growth factors (PDGFs) and binds to all isoforms of PDGFs. PDGFRβ is a receptor tyrosine kinase that forms homodimers or heterodimers on the surface upon ligand binding and phosphorylates substrates. PDGFRs consist of either homodimers of α/α, β/β, or heterodimers of α/β. PDGF receptors, α and β, are single glycoproteins with intracellular tyrosine kinase domain. Their ligand, PDGF, is a mitogen for connective tissue and glial cells. CD140b is expressed on embryonic tissues and mesenchymal-derived cells adult mice. PDGF plays a role in wound healing and acts as a chemoattractant for fibroblasts, smooth muscle cells, glial cells, monocytes, and neutrophils.

Other Names: PDGF receptor-β, PDGFR-β, platelet-derived growth factor receptor beta
Structure: Beta chain of the platelet-derived growth factor receptor, a receptor tyrosine kinase that forms homo- or hetero-dimers on the surface after ligand binding.
Distribution: Expressed on embryonic tissues and mesenchymal-derived cells of adult mouse.
Function: Play a role in wound healing and act as a chemoattractant for fibroblasts, smooth muscle cells, glial cells, monocytes and neutrophils.
Ligand Receptor: PDGFs
