EGF (epidermal growth factor) is a 6 kDA, single chain protein that serves a mitogenic factor for numerous cell types, particularly epithelial cells and fibroblasts. It is predominantly produced and secreted by the kidneys in humans. EGF activates cells through binding with its corresponding receptor (EGFR). Receptor binding activates several downstream pathways leading to cell proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis. EGF plays important roles in embryonic development, tissue regeneration, transport through ion channels, and wound healing. Dysregulated EGF signaling has been linked with renal disease progression, and EGF levels could potentially be used as biomarker to monitor disease-related cell damage (PMID: 15110798, 24513230, 27868030).
