During the course of purifying nerve growth factor from the submaxillary gland of the mouse, Cohen (1960) and Levi-Montalcini and Cohen (1960) noticed that daily injections of certain gland extract fractions into newborn mice produced developmental changes that could not be ascribed to nerve growth factor. These changes included precocious opening of the eyelids (7 days compared to the usual 14 days) and a similar early eruption of the incisors. Using these gross anatomical changes as an assay… Expand

The expression of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) during odontogenesis: Immunohistochemical study in mice (Mus musculus) A expressão do fator de crescimento epidérmico (EGF) durante a odontogênese: Estudo imunohistoquímico em camundongos (Mus musculus)
TLDR
The results showed EGF being expressed by several tissues and cells participating of the odontogenesis of the first upper molar in Mus musculus mice, but the dental follicle was the only place where the expression of EGF was constant for the whole process, characterizing it as one of the regulating tissues of Odontogenesis. Expand
Epidermal growth factor excretion in burned rats.
TLDR
Evidence for epidermal growth factor involvement in the physiological response to burns was sought from urinary levels of EGF, urea and creatinine in male rats using a standardized thermal skin injury model and treated with fluid resuscitation. Expand
Regulation of Epidermal Growth
The epidermis is a classical example of a renewing tissue. There is constant shedding of horny cells, these being replaced by new cells. Continuous replacement is of major importance for the properExpand
Epidermal growth factor (EGF) is not an index of seminiferous tubular function
TLDR
Epidermal growth factor concentrations and amounts per ejaculate were determined in 162 infertile men and in a control group of 50 pregnancy‐proven fertile men, suggesting that EGF is not an index of gonadal function. Expand
Inhibition of epidermal growth factor-like growth factor secretion in tracheobronchial epithelial cells by vitamin A.
TLDR
The results suggest that vitamin A plays an important regulatory role in the paracrine/autocrine secretion of EGF/TGF-alpha-like mitogen in TBE cell cultures. Expand
Epidermal growth factor in the mouse kidney: developmental changes and intranephron localizations
TLDR
The results suggest that the ontogeny of kidney EGF is different from that of the EGF found in the submaxillary gland, and that there is nephron heterogeneity in EGF content. Expand
Role of epidermal growth factor in peptic ulcer healing
TLDR
A rapid overview of the available data supporting a role for epidermal growth factor and its human homologue urogastrone in peptic ulcer healing is given. Expand
Polypeptide growth factors in uterine tissues and secretions.
TLDR
These results raise the intriguing possibility that uterus-derived growth factors may play a role in regulating the growth of the conceptus through a paracrine pathway involving the secretion into the uterine lumen of factors. Expand
Immunohistochemical localization of nerve growth factor and epidermal growth factor in guinea pig prostate gland
TLDR
These findings suggest that NGF and EGF are synthesized, stored, and secreted by the glandular epithelial cells of the prostate. Expand
Epidermal and Neural Growth Factors in Milk : Effects of Epidermal Growth Factor on the Development of the Gastrointestinal Tract
Over the years, many hormones have been identified in the milk of humans and other mammals (1). In 1978, Klagsbrun (2) first reported that human milk contained a mitogenic factor able to stimulateExpand

Epidermal growth factor immunoreactive material in the central nervous system: location and development.
TLDR
Epidermal growth factor may represent another gut-brain peptide with potential neurotransmitter-neuromodulator functions in pallidal structures of the extrapyramidal motor systems of the brain. Expand
Human epidermal growth factor and the proliferation of human fibroblasts

TLDR
In confluent cultures of HF cells, subject to density dependent inhibition of growth, hEGF was able to stimulate DNA synthesis more effectively than fresh calf serum, however, human EGF stimulated DNA synthesis in quiescent cultures, regardless of cell density. Expand
Epidermal growth factor modulates extracellular Ca2+ requirement for multiplication of normal human skin fibroblasts.
Abstract Epidermal growth factor (EGF) at 10 ng/ml reduces by over 50-fold the extracellular Ca 2+ required for multiplication of normal human skin fibroblasts. Therefore, a Ca 2+ -related processExpand
Nerve growth factor receptors on human melanoma cells in culture.
TLDR
NGF can be shown to increase the survival, but not the division, of melanoma cells maintained in medium depleted of serum growth factors, similar to its effect on cultured sympathetic ganglion cells and on other cells derived from the neural crest. Expand
Production and characterization of antibody blocking epidermal growth factor:receptor interactions.
TLDR
Double-immunodiffusion experiments demonstrated that the immune serum contained precipitating antibodies to several components of detergent solubilized A-431 membranes and anti-A-431 antibody blocked the induction of DNA synthesis in quiescent fibroblasts by epidermal growth factor in a manner similar to that of anti-epidermal grow factor antibody.

Stimulation of tyrosine-specific phosphorylation by platelet-derived growth factor
TLDR
The present report demonstrates that PDGF binding to cellular receptors might similarly stimulate kinase activity, and induces the phosphorylation of tyrosine residues of membrane proteins with apparent molecular weights of 175,000 and 130,000 when incubated with plasma membranes from human fibroblasts or glial cells. Expand
Specific radiolabeling of a cell surface receptor for epidermal growth factor.
TLDR
A photoreactive derivative of epidermal growth factor has been used to identify and specifically label a membrane receptor for EGF on mouse 3T3 cells, demonstrating direct proportionality between binding activity and crosslinked complex formation. Expand
Epidermal growth factor induces rapid tyrosine phosphorylation of proteins in A431 human tumor cells
TLDR
Increased phosphorylation of tyrosine is the most rapid response of cells to EGF known, and may play an important role in the biological effects of EGF. Expand
