 Biological Significance    Epigen is an EGF-related polypeptide growth factor that signals through the ErbB receptor-1. It is produced in several tissues, including the testis, liver, heart and in certain tumor cells. Epigen is mitogenic for fibroblasts and epithelial cells. Human Epigen is initially synthesized as a glycosylated 14.7 kDa transmembrane precursor protein, which is processed by proteolytic cleavage to produce a mature soluble sequence. Recombinant human Epigen is a 7.9 kDa monomeric protein, containing 72 amino acid residues, which comprises the EGF homologous portion of the Epigen precursor.
 Bioactivity    Determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of the proliferation of Mouse Balb/3T3 cells. The expected ED50 for this effect is 150-300 ng/ml.
 Endotoxin Levels    Endotoxin level is less than 0.1 ng per ug (1 EU/ug).
 Expression System    E Coli

 Preparation and Storage    Store at 4 degree C until reconstitution. Following reconstitution aliquot and freeze at -20 degree C for long term storage. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
 Other Notes    Small volumes of EPGN recombinant protein vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.

 NCBI Summary for EPGN    The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the epidermal growth factor family. Members of this family are ligands for the epidermal growth factor receptor and play a role in cell survival, proliferation and migration. This protein has been reported to have high mitogenic activity but low affinity for its receptor. Expression of this transcript and protein have been reported in cancer specimens of the breast, bladder, and prostate. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2012]
Section Bar
 UniProt Comments for EPGN    Epigen: Promotes the growth of epithelial cells. May stimulate the phosphorylation of EGFR and mitogen-activated protein kinases. 7 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.

Protein type: Membrane protein, integral; Ligand, receptor tyrosine kinase

Chromosomal Location of Human Ortholog: 4q13.3

Cellular Component: extracellular space; integral to plasma membrane

Molecular Function: growth factor activity; epidermal growth factor receptor binding

Biological Process: positive regulation of MAP kinase activity; positive regulation of mitosis; positive regulation of epidermal growth factor receptor activity; activation of MAPK activity; positive regulation of cell proliferation; MAPKKK cascade; angiogenesis; positive regulation of epithelial cell proliferation
