Heat-mediated antigen retrieval is recommended prior to staining, using a 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 min. Following antigen retrieval, incubate samples with primary antibody for 10 min at room temperature. A suggested positive control is skin or ovarian carcinoma.
PDGFR (Platelet Derived Growth Factor Receptor) exhibits two different isoforms, alpha and beta coded by two different genes. PDGF-alpha receptors are expressed in oligodendrocyte progenitor cells and PDGF-beta receptors are expressed on neurons. This antibody is specific for PDGFR, alpha and does not react with PDGFR, beta.
