Overview

Description

  • NatureRecombinant
  • SourcePichia pastoris
  • Amino Acid Sequence
    • SpeciesHuman
    • SequenceThe sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids was determined and was found to be Asn-Ser-Asp-Ser-Glu, which agrees with the sequence of native human EGF. N-terminal methionine has been completely removed enzymatically.

  • FunctionEGF 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 specificityExpressed in kidney, salivary gland, cerebrum and prostate.
  • Involvement in diseaseHypomagnesemia 4
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 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 localizationMembrane.
  • Information by UniProt
