APPLICATION

Application Note

Transforming growth factor alpha   (TGF-α),  a ligand for the epidermal growth factor receptor, which activates a signaling pathway for cell proliferation, differentiation and development. To test the effect of TGF-α on cell proliferation of 3T3 fibroblasts, 3T3 cells were seeded into triplicate wells of 96-well plates at a density of 2, 000 cells/well and allowed to attach overnight, then the medium was replaced with serum-free standard DMEM  prior to the addition of various concentrations of TGF-α. After incubated for 72h,  cells were observed by inverted microscope and cell proliferation was measured by Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8). Briefly, 10 μl of CCK-8 solution was added to each well of the plate, then measure the absorbance at 450nm using a microplate reader after incubating the plate for 1-4 hours at 37ºC. Cell proliferation of 3T3 cells after incubation with TGF-α for 72h observed by inverted microscope. And TGF-α significantly promoted cell proliferation of 3T3 cells. The ED₅₀ for this effect is typically 0. 6198-8. 210 ng/ml.

Background

This gene encodes a growth factor that is a ligand for the epidermal growth factor receptor, which activates a signaling pathway for cell proliferation, differentiation and development. This protein may act as either a transmembrane-bound ligand or a soluble ligand. This gene has been associated with many types of cancers, and it may also be involved in some cases of cleft lip/palate. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011]
