Two peptides related to platelet-derived growth factor are present in human wound fluid.

Abstract

Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) has been suggested to play an important role in wound healing. In this study wound fluid collected from patients after radical mastectomy was analyzed for PDGF-related factors. Analysis revealed the presence of two PDGF-related peptides of 16-17 kDa and 34-36 kDa. These PDGF-related peptides were purified by using anti… (More)
