Epidermal growth factor (EGF) promotes ovarian steroidogenesis and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signaling is required for gonadotropin-induced steroid production in common carp Cyprinuscarpio
Prof. Dilip Mukherjee

Kalyani, West Bengal
Mature EGF (55 amino acids) is released from large precursor anchored to the plasma membrane and EGF act by binding to a specific EGFR on the cell surface with high affinity
In non-mammalian vertebrates studies on EGF and its roles in the ovary are rather limited
Taking fish as a model we, tried to explore the regulatory role of EGF on ovarian follicular steroidogenesis and how EGFR signalingis required for gonadotropin-induced steroid production
Theca- granulosa cells
Gravid follicle of human
Effect of EGF and HCG on Testosterone (T) and 17β-estradiol (E2) production in carp ovarian follicles
Dose response effect of EGF on basal (hollow bar) and HCG-stimulated (solid bar) in vitro release of steroids
Effect of 3β-HSD inhibitor (Trilostane) on EGF- induced steroid production
We proposed that,
EGF-stimulated P85 associated PI3 kinase activation and effect of PI3 kinase inhibitor
P450 mRNA and its expression in follicular cells and effects of EGF
Sisters and Brothers of America,
It fills my heart with joy unspeakable to rise in response to the warm and cordial welcome which you have given us. I thank you in the name of the most ancient order of monks in the world; I thank you in the name of the mother of religions; and I thank you in the name of millions and millions of Hindu people of all classes and sects. My thanks, also, to some of the speakers on this platform who, referring to the delegates from the Orient, have told you that these men from far-off nations may well claim the honour of bearing to different lands the idea of toleration. I am proud to belong to a religion which has taught the world both tolerance and universal acceptance.................
