Product sample or exclusive offer
Epidermal growth factor (EGF) is characterized by high-affinity binding to various EGF receptors (EGFRs) and the production of mitogenic responses (Carpenter & Cohen). EGF promotes EGFR dimerization, resulting in activation of downstream pathways including PI3K, ERK1/2, JAK/STAT, β-catenin, and calcium signaling. EGF is secreted by the gut-associated salivary and Brunner’s glands, is found in a variety of body fluids, and stimulates cell proliferation and differentiation in rodent and neonatal human intestine (Wright et al.). Central nervous system stem cells also proliferate in response to the EGF stimulus (Reynolds & Weiss). This product is animal component-free.
(A) The biological activity of Human Recombinant EGF, ACF was tested by its ability to promote the proliferation of BALB/c 3T3 cells. Cell
proliferation was measured using a fluorometric assay method. The EC50 is defined as the effective concentration of the growth factor at
which cell proliferation is at 50% of maximum. The EC50 in the example above is 0.0459 ng/mL.
(B) 1 μg of Human Recombinant EGF, ACF was resolved with SDS-PAGE under reducing (+) and non-reducing (-) conditions and
visualized by Coomassie Blue staining.
