Epidermal Growth Factor Controls Smooth Muscle a-Isoactin Expression in BC3HI Cells

Abstract

We have examined the effects of epidermal growth factor (EGF), platelet-derived growth factor, and insulin on the differentiation of a mouse vascular smooth muscle-like cell line, the BC3H1 cells. On the basis of cell morphology and smooth muscle a-isoactin synthesis, we demonstrate that EGF at physiological concentrations prevents the differentiation of… (More)
