Recombinant Rat Heparin-binding EGF-like Growth Factor
Diphtheria Toxin Receptor (DTR)
Heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor (HBEGF) is synthesized as a transmembrane precursor that is cleaved by a protease to release HBEGF as the ectodomain. Its expression stimulates neurogenesis and is increased after the brain experiences cerebral hypoxia. HBEGF is known to participate in a variety of normal physiological processes such as blastocyst implantation and wound healing, as well as in pathological processes such as tumor growth, SMC hyperplasia and atherosclerosis. HBEGF is a glycoprotein exhibiting mitogenic and chemotactic activity in smooth muscle cells and fibroblasts.
