Human EGF is produced by genetically engineered yeast, and purified by sequential chromatography and reverse-phase HPLC. This polypeptide is identical to gamma-urogastrone, or equivalent to human.
Catalog #E3412
Biological ActivityThe mitogenic activity of human EGF is measured by the stimulation of 3H-thymidine incorporation into human foreskin fibroblast cells. In addition, EGF activity has been determined by a receptor-binding assay (RBA) using A-431 cells.
