Heparin-binding epidermal growth factor (HB-EGF) and betacellulin (BTC) are activating ligands for EGF receptor (EGFR/ErbB1) and ErbB4. To identify their physiological functions, we disrupted mouse HB-EGF and BTC alleles by homologous recombination. Most HB-EGF(-/-) mice died before weaning, and survivors had enlarged, dysfunctional hearts and reduced lifespans. Although BTC(-/-) mice were viable and fertile and displayed no overt defects, the lifespan of double null HB-EGF(-/-)/BTC(-/-) mice… CONTINUE READING
