Immunofluorescent analysis of PDGFR alpha in serum-starved HeLa cells treated with insulin (100ng/mL, 15 min) using a PDGFR alpha recombinant rabbit oligoclonal antibody (Product # 710169) followed by detection using an Alexa Fluor 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit secondary antibody (green) (Image A). Nuclei were stained using DAPI (Image B) and actin stained with Alexa Fluor 594 phalloidin (red) (image C). Image D is a composite image showing cytoplasmic and nuclear membrane localization of PDGFR-alpha.

ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are rabbit monoclonal antibodies, unmatched for producing superior results. ABfinity™ antibodies are developed by immunizing animals, screening for functionality, cloning the immunogen-specific antibody genes into high-level mammalian expression vectors, produced on a large scale and purified with Protein A.
ABfinity™ oligoclonal antibodies comprise a selection of multiple different recombinant monoclonal antibodies, providing the best of both worlds—the sensitivity of a polyclonal antibody with the specificity of a monoclonal, all delivered with the consistency only found in a recombinant antibody. While functionally the same as a polyclonal antibody—recognizing multiple epitope sites on the target and producing higher detection sensitivity for low abundance targets when compared with monoclonal antibodies—an oligoclonal antibody has a known mixture of light and heavy chains. This exact population can be produced in every lot, circumventing the biological variability typically associated with polyclonal antibody production.
Intact IgG appears on a non-reducing gel as ~150 kDa band and upon reduction generating a ~25 kDa light chain band and a ~50 kDa heavy chain.
PDGFR-alpha belongs to the protein tyrosine kinase family, and binds to the alpha chain of PDGF. Members of the PDGF receptor subfamily are cell surface receptors that act as mitogens for cells of mesenchymal origin, and consist of alpha and beta isoforms of ~190, and 125 kDa, respectively. Activated PDGF receptors act on signaling pathways that control cell growth, actin reorganization, migration, and differentiation. In humans, the gene is located on the q arm of chromosome 4.
