Few publications have suggested a relationship between up-regulated PDGFB gene and occurrence of DFSP.
Evaluation of mRNA expression of TGF[beta]1 and PDGFb, growth factors involved with angiogenesis, found lower expression of TGF[beta]1 in animals only treated with ethanol (Figure 5(e)) and trended towards increased PDGFb in mice supplemented with tributyrin (Figure 5(f)).
Only PDGFB (p = 0.004), TJP2 (p = 0.03), and CDH5 (p = 0.001) had higher expression on the biopaper at this time point.

showed that TGF[beta] induces proliferation in one cell line (U373MG) of glioblastoma cells, but inhibits it in another (U87MG) and this is connected to TGF[beta] induced platelet-derived growth factor B (PDGFB).
The final step of angiogenesis is the vessel stabilization, achieved with the secretion of platelet-derived growth factor beta (PDGFB), which acts on a paracrine fashion on pericytes recruitment [58].
The fold change in the top 5 of the downregulated genes (Kitl, Pparg, Vegfc, Ptgs2, and Pdgfb) ranged from 24.57 to 5.95 and in the top 5 of the upregulated genes (Mmp2, Dapk2, Tcf7, Wnt1, and Birc3) from 6.91 to 3.18.
Various regions within the alpha- helical domain of the COL1A1 gene are fused to the second exon of the PDGFB gene in dermatofibrosarcomas and giant-cell fibroblastomas.
Tambien se ha informado que los genes inmediatamente tempranos del CMV incrementan significativamente la proliferacion de las celulas del musculo liso, proceso tiempo dependiente, facilitado por el aumento de la expresion del receptor del factor de crecimiento derivados de las plaquetas (PDGFb) (31).
Its hot spot regions are mainly on the 1st and 8th exons; the second common one is PDGFB where the hot spot covered a length of 220-230 bp localized on the 2nd exon; moreover, Chinese IBGC patients featured early-onset, more severe movement disorder and relatively mild cognitive impairment compared with those in other countries.
Beta-type platelet-derived growth factor receptor (Pdgfb) is a marker of HSCs, C-type lectin domain family 4f (Clec4f) is a marker for Kupffer cells, and albumin is a marker for hepatocytes.
