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.
modificationsO-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).

Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence analysis of A431 (Human epidermoid carcinoma cell line) cells labeling EGFR with ab9697 at 1/100, 3 μg/ml. Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with 0.1% tritonX-100. ab150077, a AlexaFluor®488 Goat anti-Rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody at 1/1000, 2 μg/ml. Cells were counterstained with ab195889, anti-alpha Tubulin antibody [DM1A] - Microtubule Marker (Alexa Fluor® 594) at 1/200, 2.5 μg/ml. Nuclear stain was DAPI (blue).
The green staining on the membrane was increased in the EGF (100ng/ml, 10min) treated A431 cells when compared with A431 cells without treatment. After LP treatment, the green signaling was obviously decreased.
For the pan antibody, there was no great difference after EGF (100ng/ml, 10min) or EGF (100ng/ml, 10min) + LP treatment. The data showed mostly membranous staining.
