Effect of EGF on the Labeling of Various RNA Species and of Proteins from Subcellular Fractions in Primary Rat Astroglial Cell Cultures
The ability of epidermal growth factor (EGF) to stimulate cell growth, proliferation and differentiation has been shown for a variety of cell types. Rat cerebral astrocytes bind high amounts of EGF and are responsive to the mitogenic stimulation of EGF when cultured in serum-free medium (1).
