|Full Name||epidermal growth factor|
|Product Description||Rabbit Polyclonal antibody to pro-EGF (pro-epidermal growth factor)|
|Background||Epidermal growth factor has a profound effect on the differentiation of specific cells in vivo and is a potent mitogenic factor for a variety of cultured cells of both ectodermal and mesodermal origin. The EGF precursor is believed to exist as a membrane-bound molecule which is proteolytically cleaved to generate the 53-amino acid peptide hormone that stimulates cells to divide.
