EPIDERMAL GROWTH FACTOR RECEPTOR (EGFR) – AN ESSENTIAL MEDIATOR OF CARDIAC CONTRACTILE FUNCTION AND REMODELING

Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR), a member of the Erbb receptor tyrosine kinase family, is essential to the development of multiple tissue and organs. Due to the embryonic lethality of global EGFR deletion, the impact of EGFR signaling in the adult heart, normally or in response to pathological stimuli, has not been well-explored. Using recently attained mice with floxed EGFR alleles crossed with αMHC-Cre mice, we have generated a cardiomyocyte-specific constitutive EGFR knockout mouse model...
