Recombinant Human Epithelial Mitogen
EPGN is a member of the epidermal growth factor family and expression has been seen in several tissues, including the testis, liver, heart and certain tumor cells. It is a strong mitogen for fibroblasts and epithelial cells but has low affinity for its main receptor, ErbB1. The enhanced mitogenic potential is attributed to inefficient receptor ubiquitylation and endocytosis. EPGN stimulates phosphorylation of c- erbB-1 and MAP kinases in epithelial cells. The protein contains a conserved sequence of six cysteine residues and two N-linked glycosylation sites, with two hydrophobic regions comprised of a signal sequence and a transmembrane domain. Alternative splicing of the EPGN gene results in multiple isoforms.
