Technical Data
EGF, Recombinant, Mouse, aa977-1029, His-Tag (Pro-epidermal Growth Factor, Epidermal Growth Factor)
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Recombinant mouse epidermal growth factor (EGF) is a 8.6kD globular protein containing 77aa residues, including 3 intra-molecular disulfide bonds. 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.

Recombinant corresponding to aa977-1029 from mouse EGF, fused to His-tag at N-terminus, expressed in E.coli.
