Important: Sodium azide forms explosive compounds with heavy metals. These products contain <0.05% (w/w) azide which with repeated contact with lead and copper commonly found in plumbing drains may result in the buildup of shock sensitive compounds. Dispose in accordance with regulations from your institute.

Epidermal growth factor (Accession P01132) previously known as urogastrone, is a member of the EGF family of growth factors. EGF is produced by multiple tissue types in the body and has many sites of action throughout. It has a role in stimulating the growth of keratinocytes for use in epidermal regeneration after split-thickness wounds or partial-thickness burns. EGF also has an inhibitor role relating to gastric acid secretion. In conjunction with bFGF, EGF is integral for extracellular matrix mineralization. It is currently understood that with dental pulp stem cells, EGF could be utilized in periodontal procedures.
