  • Function
    EGF stimulates the growth of various epidermal and epithelial tissues in vivo and in vitro and of some fibroblasts in cell culture. Magnesiotropic hormone that stimulates magnesium reabsorption in the renal distal convoluted tubule via engagement of EGFR and activation of the magnesium channel TRPM6. Can induce neurite outgrowth in motoneurons of the pond snail Lymnaea stagnalis in vitro (PubMed:10964941).
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in kidney, salivary gland, cerebrum and prostate.
  • Involvement in disease
    Hypomagnesemia 4
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 9 EGF-like domains.
    Contains 9 LDL-receptor class B repeats.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    O-glycosylated with core 1-like and core 2-like glycans. It is uncertain if Ser-954 or Thr-955 is O-glycosylated. The modification here shows glycan heterogeneity: HexHexNAc (major) and Hex2HexNAc2 (minor).
  • Cellular localization
    Membrane.
  • Information by UniProt

Thank you for contacting us.
The two active proteins are essentially the same, and both can be used to induce phosphorylation as they have been tested in functional studies. The only difference would be that ab9697 is supplied as lyophilized powde...
