QuickView for PDGF receptor (compound)


Name: Receptors, Platelet-Derived Growth Factor
Description: Specific receptors on cell membranes that react with PLATELET-DERIVED GROWTH FACTOR, its analogs, or antagonists. The alpha PDGF receptor (RECEPTOR, PLATELET-DERIVED GROWTH FACTOR ALPHA) and the beta PDGF receptor (RECEPTOR, PLATELET-DERIVED GROWTH FACTOR BETA) are the two principle types of PDGF receptors. Activation of the protein-tyrosine kinase activity of the receptors occurs by ligand-induced dimerization or heterodimerization of PDGF receptor types.
Synonyms:
Receptor, PDGF; Receptors, PDGF; PDGF Receptor; Platelet Derived Growth Factor Receptor; Platelet-Derived Growth Factor Receptor; PDGF Receptors; Platelet Derived Growth Factor Receptors; Receptors, Platelet Derived Growth Factor; Platelet-Derived Growth Factor Receptors
