Human platelets secrete a factor that stimulates cultured human cells to initiate DNA synthesis and to divide. This human platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) has been purified congruent to 100,000-fold into two equally active homogeneous fractions, PDGF I (Mr congruent to 31,000) and PDGF II (Mr congruent to 28,000). The amino acid compositions of each are similar, highly basic, and show 18 half-cystine residues. Both PDGF I and II are glycoproteins, but differ in their carbohydratepmid:7263691 fatcat:lvdhf5g6arflfkxc5u5ik2geqq
