Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) cell signaling plays a central role in beta-cell mass/function regulation, and provides a new strategy for the treatment of diabetes, but its mechanisms of action remain poorly understood. In developmental biology, pancreatic islet development is impaired in lacking EGFR of mice. The attenuation of EGFR signaling in… CONTINUE READING
