Background: epidermal growth factor (EGF) stimulates cell growth and differentiation through its receptor EGFR. Cross-talking between the GH and EGF signaling pathways is important for normal cellular development. GH transduction defect (GHTD), a clinical disorder characterized by impaired STAT3 phosphorylation due to excessive GHR degradation, is caused by over-expression of the E3 ubiquitin ligase, CIS.Induction of GHTD fibroblasts with 200 ng/ml hGH (GH200) and silencing mR...
