Recombinant Human EGF(Epidermal Growth Factor)

Catalog Number : E002
Available Size : 100µg, 500µg, 1mg
Synonyms : Epidermal Growth Factor, Urogastrone, URG
Description : 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
Source : INNOkine recombinant human EGF is produced in rice suspension cells (Oryza sativa L. cv. Dongjin)
Purity : Greater than 98% by SDS-PAGE gel and HPLC analyses.
