Description of Murine EGF

Recombinant murine Epidermal Growth Factor (mEGF) derived from E. coli is a 6.0 kDA protein with 3 intramole-cular disulfide-bonds containing 53 amino acids. EGF is a potent growth factor, which stimulates the proliferation of various epidermal and epithelial cells and some fibroblasts. Additionally, EGF has been shown to inhibit gastric secre-tion, and to be involved in wound healing. EGF signals trough a receptor known as c-erbB, which is a class I tyrosine kinase receptor. This receptor also binds with TGF-alpha and VGF (vaccinia virus growth factor). Biological activities ascribed to EGF include epithelial development, angiogenesis, inhibition of gastric acid secretion, fibroblast proliferation and colony formation of epidermal cells in culture.


Biological Activity

The ED50 of ≤ 0.1ng/ml was determined by the dose dependent stimulation of the proliferation of murine BALB/c 3T3 cells. It corresponds to a specific activity of ≥ 1 x 107 units/mg.



We recommend a quick spin followed by reconstitution in sterile water to a concentration of at least 100g/ml. Do not vortex. This solution can be stored at 2-8C for up to 1 week. For long term storage, it is recommended to further dilute in a buffer - if possible - containing a carrier (0.1% HSA, order number: or, or BSA, order number: and store in working aliquots at -20C to -80C.



The lyophilized protein is stable at room temperature for up to 1 month and below -20C until expiry date. Reconstituted protein is stable for at least 12 months when stored in working aliquots with a carrier at -20C to -80C. Please avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
