Activation of MAP kinase ERK-1, -2, and SRE-dependent transcription by TPA or EGF. Using anti-phospho-ERK-1/2 antibody, we measured the amount of phospho-ERK-1/2, an activated form of ERK, in SRE-luciferase reporter (S13) cells treated with varying concentrations of TPA or EGF.
Four weeks after the start of the trial, 10 of the 12 people getting EGF were free of most symptoms, but only 3 of the 12 people getting saline enemas were.
As mentioned above, [H.sub.2][O.sub.2] crosses the cell membrane and activates the intracellular domain of the EGF receptor, resulting in downstream activation of Ras, Raf, MEK, and ERK (30).
The findings of Figure 10(a1) show that cells exposed to the combined stimulation of TNF[alpha] + Estrogen + EGF have given rise to smaller tumors than control non-stimulated cells, due to possible reasons described further on (Section 4).

Recombinant human epidermal growth factor (EGF, 2-10 ng/ml) stimulated growth and production of non-collagenous proteins, but inhibited production of collagen by 60% in cultured human skin fibroblasts.
For instance, certain growth factors, such as insulin-like growth factor-1, keratinocyte growth factor, and epidermal growth factor (EGF), as well as HER2/ neu, a member of the EGF-receptor family of receptor tyrosine kinase, can activate AR-dependent genes in absence of AR ligand (Culig et al.
