Identification of the high affinity binding site of transforming growth factor-alpha (TGF-alpha) for the chicken epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor using EGF/TGF-alpha chimeras.


Human epidermal growth factor (hEGF) and human transforming growth factor-alpha (hTGF-alpha) are structurally related growth factors that share relatively little sequence homology. They both exert their biological action by binding to the cell-surface EGF receptor. hEGF and hTGF-alpha bind with similar affinity to the hEGF receptor, but hEGF binds with an… (More)
