Epidermal growth factor-related peptides activate distinct subsets of ErbB receptors and differ in their biological activities J Biol Chem. 1996
Epiregulin bound to the EGF receptors of epidermoid carcinoma A431 cells much more weakly than did EGF, but was nevertheless much more potent than EGF as a mitogen for rat primary hepatocytes and Balb/c 3T3 A31 fibroblasts. These findings suggest that epiregulin plays important roles in regulating the growth of epithelial cells and fibroblasts by binding to receptors for EGF-related ligands Toyoda H, et al. 1995

EGF receptor modifies cellular responses to hyaluronan in glioblastoma cell lines. Tsatas D et al.
Cell contact with the extracellular matrix component, hyaluronan, plays a pivotal role in glioma cell invasion and proliferation. Although it is well established that glioma cells can bind hyaluronan to their surface via the expression of CD44, the cellular responses following ligand-receptor interaction remain poorly understood. ... Here we present evidence that CD44 co-immunoprecipitates with EGFR and ErbB2 in the glioma cell lines U87MG and SMA560. ... These results indicate a novel functional relationship between CD44 and EGFR in glioma cell lines. ... These findings provide new insights into the mode by which hyaluronan regulates the malignant phenotype and also suggest a role for EGFR-CD44 interactions in glial tumorigenesis.
