Effects of epidermal growth factor (EGF) on the development of EGF-receptor (EGF-R) binding in fetal rabbit lung organ culture.

Abstract

Epidermal growth factor (EGF) causes gender- and development-specific changes in fetal lung surfactant synthesis. We hypothesized that the effects of EGF on development of surfactant synthesis are related to effects on EGF receptor (EGF-R) expression. We prepared sex-specific fetal rabbit lung organ cultures on gestational days 21 and 24 (term = 31 days) in… (More)
