|Other Names||Proheparin-binding EGF-like growth factor, Heparin-binding EGF-like growth factor, HB-EGF, HBEGF, Diphtheria toxin receptor, DT-R, HBEGF, DTR, DTS, HEGFL|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||DTR, DTS, HEGFL|
|Function||Growth factor that mediates its effects via EGFR, ERBB2 and ERBB4. Required for normal cardiac valve formation and normal heart function. Promotes smooth muscle cell proliferation. May be involved in macrophage-mediated cellular proliferation. It is mitogenic for fibroblasts, but not endothelial cells. It is able to bind EGF receptor/EGFR with higher affinity than EGF itself and is a far more potent mitogen for smooth muscle cells than EGF. Also acts as a diphtheria toxin receptor.|
|Cellular Location||Heparin-binding EGF-like growth factor: Secreted, extracellular space. Note=Mature HB-EGF is released into the extracellular space and probably binds to a receptor|
