: PDGF is a member of the platelet-derived growth factor family which is mitogenic factors for cells of mesenchymal origin and is characterized by a motif of eight cysteines. PDGF is a cationic glycoprotein consisting of homo- or heterodimers of polypeptide chains A and/or B and a potent mitogen for connective tissue cells and exerts its function by interacting with 2 related receptor tyrosine kinases, PDGFRA and PDGFRB (1). PDGF A and B chain mRNA in mesenchymal-appearing intimal cells and endothelial cells, respectively, of atherosclerotic plaques. Moreover PDGF receptor mRNA was localized predominantly in the plaque intima (2).
