Rat liver epidermal growth factor receptors in intrauterine growth retarded and heavy-for-date fetuses.

Abstract

We recently reported that epidermal growth factor (EGF) levels in the first urine to be voided by intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) and heavy-for-dates (HFD) infants were lower than control infants (8). In this study, we analyzed EGF receptors to reveal the mechanisms controlling EGF levels. EGF binding to fetal rat liver increased markedly from day 19… (More)
