Among different growth factors examined, adiponectin was found to influence vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-induced cellular migration and to bind with platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF), and heparin-binding epidermal growth factor (HB-EGF) with distinct affinities. The binding of adiponectin with these growth factors is oligomerization-dependent. PDGF binds to the high molecular weight (HMW) and middle molecular weight (MMW) complexes but not to the low molecular weight (LMW) complex.
