Gene Description PDGFB, platelet derived growth factor subunit B, is a growth factor that signals through PDGFRs and plays a role in regulation of development, cell proliferation, cell migration (PMID: 18483217), and angiogenesis (PMID: 32235327). Overexpression of PDGFB has been implicated in several tumor types (PMID: 24359404), including oral squamous cell carcinoma (PMID: 32235327), and a fusion with COL1A1 has been reported in dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (PMID: 31870844, PMID: 31353504).
