GeneID: 1950 Human EGF

Swiss-port # P01133 Human Pro-epidermal growth factor

Gene Symbol EGF
Gene Full Name epidermal growth factor
Background Epidermal growth factor (EGF), along with its receptor EGFR, plays an important role in cell proliferation, differentiation and survival. The binding of EGF to EGFR triggers the intrinsic tyrosine kinase activity of EGFR, activates signalling molecules and stimulates the synthesis of proteins and DNAs. EGF is crucial for maintaining mucosal lining in gastrointestinal duct and for healing of oral and gastro esophageal ulcers. EGF signalling is needed for cancer growth. Monoclonal antibodies that block EGFR have been applied for lung cancer and colon inhibition.
Function EGF stimulates the growth of various epidermal and epithelial tissues in vivo and in vitro and of some fibroblasts in cell culture. Magnesiotropic hormone that stimulates magnesium reabsorption in the renal distal convoluted tubule via engagement of EGFR and activation of the magnesium channel TRPM6. Can induce neurite outgrowth in motoneurons of the pond snail Lymnaea stagnalis in vitro (PubMed:10964941). [UniProt]

PTM O-glycosylated with core 1-like and core 2-like glycans. It is uncertain if Ser-954 or Thr-955 is O-glycosylated. The modification here shows glycan heterogeneity: HexHexNAc (major) and Hex2HexNAc2 (minor).
