Abstract: Our findings of altered expression of TGF-alpha and EGF-R during retinal development suggests a biological function for this growth factor, possibly promoting retinal cell proliferation, differentiation, and survival. The altered immunolocalization of TGF-alpha and EGF-R in the hyperoxia-exposed retina suggest that TGF-alpha is likely involved in the retinal response to injury.
