Transforming growth factor, alpha

This gene encodes a growth factor that is a ligand for the epidermal growth factor receptor, which activates a signaling pathway for cell proliferation, differentiation and development. This protein may act as either a transmembrane-bound ligand or a soluble ligand. This gene has been associated with many types of cancers, and it may also be involved in some cases of cleft lip/palate. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011] (from NCBI)

1,25(OH)2D prevents/moderates not only the onset and progression of parathyroid TACE/TGFalpha-driven secondary hyperparathyroidism, but, more significantly, renal TACE/TGFalpha-driven fibrotic and inflammatory lesions to the renal parenchyma, and TACE/TNFalpha-driven systemic inflammation, which is known to aggravate renal and cardiovascular lesions and enhance the risk of vascular calcification and cardiovascular mortality.
