Gene: Egf (epidermal growth factor) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Egf
Name: epidermal growth factor
RGD ID: 2542
Description: Enables epidermal growth factor receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of DNA biosynthetic process; positive regulation of ERK1 and ERK2 cascade; and positive regulation of fibroblast proliferation. Acts upstream of or within regulation of protein transport. Located in extracellular space. Used to study perinatal necrotizing enterocolitis. Biomarker of acute kidney failure. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Zollinger-Ellison syndrome; hepatobiliary system cancer (multiple); high grade glioma (multiple); lung non-small cell carcinoma (multiple); and primary hypomagnesemia (multiple). Orthologous to human EGF (epidermal growth factor); PARTICIPATES IN epidermal growth factor/neuregulin signaling pathway; altered epidermal growth factor/neuregulin signaling pathway; ceramide signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; (R)-noradrenaline; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Previously known as: LOC103691699; pro-epidermal growth factor; uncharacterized LOC103691699
