Epidermal growth factor receptors and adenylate cyclase activity in human thyroid tissues

Abstract

Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and epidermal growth factor (EGF) are growth factors for some thyroid cells in cultures. We have previously found more EGF receptors in neoplastic human thyroid tissues than in normal thyroid tissues. We have also found a higher TSH-stimulated adenylate cyclase (AC) activity in neoplastic human thyroid tissues than in… (More)
