Transforming growth factor alpha (TGF-α) is a member of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) family. TGF-α can be produced in macrophages, brain cells, and keratinocytes. TGF-α has also been observed to be highly expressed in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) (5). This finding suggests a role for EGFR signaling in the regulation of CLOCK and circadian rhythms within the SCN. Additional studies have shown that when injected into the third ventricle TGF-α can suppress circadian locomotor behavior along with drinking or eating activities.
