Developmental and Hormonal Regulation of Transforming Growth Factor-α and Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Gene Expression in Isolated Prostatic Epithelial and Stromal Cells.


Androgen has an important role in development of the prostate, and the actions of androgen are mediated, in part, by locally produced growth factors. These growth factors are postulated to mediate stromal-epithelial interaction in the prostate to maintain normal tissue physiology. Transforming growth factor-alpha (TGF-alpha) is one of the growth factors… (More)
