Aliases:This biomarker is also known as:
- platelet-derived growth factor alpha polypeptide,
- Platelet-derived growth factor,
PDGFA, or platelet-derived growth factor alpha polypeptide, is a member of the platelet-derived growth factor family. PDGFA is a growth factor that plays an essential role in the regulation of embryonic development, cell proliferation, cell migration, survival and chemotaxis. There are four members of the PDGF family, characterized by a motif of eight cysteines. PDGFA exists as either a homodimer or a heterodimer with PDGFB (platelet-derived growth factor beta polypeptide).
