We investigated the ability of endocytosed activated epidermal growth factor receptors (EGFR) to induce expression of the cyclin-interacting protein p21/CIP1 in A431 cells. Transforming growth factor alpha (TGFalpha) and EGF both induced tyrosine phosphorylation, induction of p21/CIP1, and thereby inhibition of DNA synthesis. TGFalpha is released from the EGFR when the TGFalpha-EGFR complex encounters low pH upon endocytosis. Consistently, we found more rapid dephosphorylation of the EGFR and… CONTINUE READING
