Recent years have witnesssed a tremendous growth of data on platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), a cytokine which is likely to be an important signal substance in growth, development and tissue repair mechanisms. This volume brings together what is known about the structure, function and signal transduction pathway of PDGF. Invited experts discuss in detail: structural information on PDGF and its genes; PDGF receptors and their signal transduction pathways; important in vivo aspects of PDGF, including clinical implications; the possible role of PDGF and its receptors in development; and the mechanism of "sis"-transformation and the possible role of PDGF in oncogenesis. This timely synthesis of the most relevant and current research will be extremely useful for both established investigators and newcomers in the growth factor field.
