APPLICATION

Application Note

PDGFA (Platelet-derived growth factor subunit A) is a Growth factor that plays an essential role in the regulation of embryonic development, cell proliferation, cell migration, survival and chemotaxis. PDGFA has been described as a chemoattractant for monocytes and proven to be able to induce chemotactic migration of THP-1 cells. Therefore, chemotaxis assay used 24-well microchemotaxis system was undertaken to detect the chemotactic effect of PDGFA on the human monocytic cell line THP-1. Briefly, THP-1 cells were seeded into the upper chambers (100 μl cell suspension, 1x10⁶cells/ml in RPMI-1640 with 0. 5% FBS) and PDGFA (1. 5 ng/ml, 7. 5 ng/ml and 15 ng/ml diluted separately in serum free RPMI-1640 ) was added in lower chamber with a polycarbonate filter (8μm pore size) used to separate the two compartments. After incubation at 37ºC with 5% CO₂ for 3h, the filter was removed, then cells in low chamber were observed by inverted microscope at low magnification (×40) and the number of migrated cells were counted at high magnification (×400) randomly. PDGFA is able to induce migration of THP-1 cells, and the optimum chemotaxis of PDGFA occurs at 1. 5 ng/ml.

The chemotactic effect of GTX00292-pro Mouse PDGFA protein (active).
Upper: (A) THP-1 cells were seeded into the upper chambers and serum free RPMI-1640 without PDGFA was added in lower chamber, then cells in lower chamber were observed at low magnification (×40) after incubation for 3hrs.
(B) THP-1 cells were seeded into the upper chambers and serum free RPMI-1640 with 1.5 ng/ml PDGFA was added in lower chamber, then cells in lower chamber were observed at low magnification (×40) after incubation for 3hrs.
Lower: The number of migrated cells were counted at high magnification (×400) randomly (five fields for each filter).
