Chemical EGF Family of Proteins

Name EGF Family of Proteins
Equivalent Terms EGF Receptor Ligands | Epidermal Growth Factor Like Proteins | Epidermal Growth Factor-Like Proteins | Epidermal Growth Factors | Ligands, EGF Receptor | Proteins EGF Family | Receptor Ligands, EGF
Definition A family of proteins that are related to epidermal growth factor. They share in common a consensus sequence consisting of six spatially conserved CYSTEINE residues which form three intramolecular bonds. This consensus sequence is commonly referred to EGF motif and is considered essential for binding of the proteins to ERB RECEPTORS.
