Interaction of epidermal growth factor with receptors on human and porcine thyroid membranes.

Abstract

Recent evidence suggests that epidermal growth factor (EGF) may play an important role in the regulation of thyroid growth and function. We have examined the interaction of murine EGF (mEGF) with human and porcine thyroid membranes and compared this with the binding of bovine TSH (bTSH) using 125I-labelled hormones as tracers. The characteristics of the… (More)
