Expression of platelet-derived growth factor-A (PDGF-A), PDGF-B, and PDGF receptor-alpha and -beta during human testicular development and disease.
The platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) family members, PDGF-A, -B, -C, and -D, are assembled as disulfide-linked homo- or heterodimers, and two receptor tyrosine kinases, PDGFR-[alpha] and -[beta], which can form homo- and heterodimeric receptor complexes, have been identified [16].
