EGF is the prototypic member of a family of growth factors that are characterized by the presence of EGF like domains and activate members of the EGF receptor family. Proteolytic cleavage of a membrane-bound precursor releases mature soluble EGF which interacts with the EGF R to promote proliferation and differentiation of mesenchymal and epithelial cells.
