One of the major areas of activity of growth factors belonging to the EGF family is the regulation of growth and differentiation of epidermal cells and epithelial cells. Interactions of the EGF-like polypeptides and their receptor (ErbB) are the subject of a vast number of works published in the last decade. However, even the latest reports do not settle definitively that EGF-related factors are physiologically relevant and what is the mechanism for regulating growth, differentiation and programmed cell death of keratinocytes. This article presents issues of the mammalian EGF-like growth factors, ErbB receptors and their interaction in the stimulation of normal and pathological growth of the cells of the epidermis.
