Heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor is an autocrine growth factor for human keratinocytes.

Abstract

Since heparin-binding epidermal growth factor (HB-EGF) is a member of the EGF family and binds to EGF receptor, we tested recombinant HB-EGF for its ability to stimulate human keratinocyte proliferation. The effect of HB-EGF on human keratinocytes was dependent on the cell density. HB-EGF optimally increased the cell number by 1.8-fold at 1.0 ng/ml for a 4… (More)
