Platelet-derived growth factors (PDGF) regulate cell proliferation, survival, morphology, and migration, as well as deposition and turnover of the extracellular matrix. Important roles for the A form of PDGF (PDGF-A) during connective tissue morphogenesis have been highlighted by the murine Patch mutation, which includes a deletion of the alpha subunit of the PDGF receptor. Homozygous (Ph/Ph) embryos exhibit multiple connective tissue defects including cleft face (involving the first branchial… CONTINUE READING
