Variations in the Level of Transforming Growth Factor-Alpha (TGFα) mRNA During the Human Menstrual Cycle
Transforming growth factor alpha (TGFα) is a peptide growth factor which is highly homologous to epidermal growth factor (EGF) and shares the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGF-R) to affect its action. These growth factors may play a role in the normal physiology of the human reproductive system.
