PDGFA [ENSP00000346508]
 
platelet-derived growth factor alpha polypeptide; Platelet-derived growth factor is a potent mitogen for cells of mesenchymal origin. Binding of this growth factor to its affinity receptor elicits a variety of cellular responses. It is released by platelets upon wounding and plays an important role in stimulating adjacent cells to grow and thereby heals the wound
PDGFRA [ENSP00000257290]
 
platelet-derived growth factor receptor, alpha polypeptide; Receptor that binds both PDGFA and PDGFB and has a tyrosine-protein kinase activity
