Function and application of Epidermal Growth Factor
Update time:2018-03-14 18:50:41   【 Font: Large  Medium Small

         In 1962, Cohen first discovered the epidermal growth factor (EGF), which is a small molecule polypeptide widely found in human or animal body, consisting of 53 amino acids. EGF binds to the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) on the cell membrane to regulate important biological processes together, such as cell differentiation, division and proliferation. Because of the in-depth study on the structure and mechanism of EGF, Montalcini and Cohen won the 1986 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine.

         A large number of studies have shown that EGF can delay the aging of the skin and restore the vitality of the epidermis, so that the skin can restore soft, elastic and normal tension, playing a role of anti-wrinkle. Besides, EGF can activate the basal cells of the skin, which can promote the healing of cutaneous and mucosal wounds, playing a role of anti-inflammatory, analgesic and preventing ulcers. In addition, EGF can also egulate the secretion of gastric acid and digestive, thereby protecting the gastrointestinal mucosa, and promoting mucosal injury repair.




        According to the good physiological characteristics of EGF, it is often used as a medicine widely in the treatment of skin burns, corneal transplants and post-operative wounds, which shows good therapeutic effects. In recent years, EGF is often added to cosmetics as a bioactive agent for sun protection, whitening, anti-aging and other effects, which greatly improves the cosmetics skin care features and the quality and grade of cosmetics.

        Due to the power of EGF, more and more researchers are interested in it. In order to meet the needs of researchers, Wuhan EIAab Science Co., Ltd developed human epidermal growth factor (EGF) ELISA kit, human epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) ELISA kit, human epidermal growth factor 7 (EGF-like protein 7) ELISA kit.
