Nerve growth factor (NGF) treatment causes a profound down-regulation of epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptors (EGFR) during the neuronal differentiation of PC12 cells. This process was characterized by a progressive decrease in EGFR level, as measured by 125I-EGF binding and Scatchard analysis, tyrosine phosphorylation, Western blotting, and bio-imaging(More)
