EGF in Human Lung Cancer Tissue. EGF was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human lung cancer tissue using Mouse Anti-Human/Primate EGF Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB636) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to the plasma membrane and cytoplasm. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

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
