FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The protein encoded by this gene is a transmembrane glycoprotein that is a member of the protein kinase superfamily. This protein is a receptor for members of the epidermal growth factor family. EGFR is a cell surface protein that binds to epidermal growth factor. Binding of the protein to a ligand induces receptor dimerization and tyrosine autophosphorylation and leads to cell proliferation. Mutations in this gene are associated with lung cancer.

PHENOTYPE: Mutations widely affect epithelial development. Null homozygote survival is strain dependent, with defects observed in skin, eye, brain, viscera, palate, tongue and other tisses. Other mutations produce an open eyed, curly whisker phenotype, while a dominant hypermorph yields a thickened epidermis. [provided by MGI curators]
