Animal-Free Recombinant Human EGF

Product Details

Catalogue Number: AF-100-15

EGF is a potent growth factor that stimulates the proliferation of various epidermal and epithelial cells. Additionally, EGF has been shown to inhibit gastric secretion, and to be involved in wound healing. EGF signals through a receptor known as c-erbB, which is a class I tyrosine kinase receptor. This receptor also binds with TGF-α and VGF (vaccinia virus growth factor). Recombinant Human EGF is a 6.2 kDa globular protein containing 53 amino acid residues, including 3 intramolecular disulfide bonds.
