化粧品分野では、機能性をもたせた商品が多く出回るようになってきた。細胞成長因子(セルグロースファクター)は、これまで再生医療、分子生物学等、学術並びに医療分野でのみしか用いられてこなかった。 しかしながら、EGF(上皮細胞成長(増殖)因子)、FGF-1(繊維芽細胞成長(増殖)因子)並びにFGF-7等の細胞成長因子は、化粧品成分として認められるようになってきて以来、細胞新生させて美容に用いる戦略の次世代の高機能化粧品の成分として注目されてきている。
 ここで、参考までに、EGF、FGF-1並びにFGF-7の働き、活性を簡単に下記に示す。
 
EGF(上皮細胞成長因子)は、主に上皮細胞に対して細胞増殖を促進させる蛋白質である。1986年にノーベル賞を受賞したコーエンは、成長因子の研究を続けていくうちに、マウスの顎下腺から得た成分を新生マウスに注射したところ、正常の動物に比べて眼瞼の開裂や歯の発育が早期から起こることを見出した。1962年にコーエンはマウスの顎下腺からこの熱に安定な蛋白質を分離し、この蛋白質のマウスに対する作用を顕微鏡的に確認したところ、目瞼や歯に対する作用は上皮系細胞の増殖の結果であることを明らかとして、EGFと命名した。すなわち、EGFを化粧品成分として用いることにより、皮膚の上皮層の新生が活発となり、若々しい皮膚に改質させることが期待されている。
一方、FGFは繊維芽細胞に対して細胞増殖を促進させる蛋白質である。すなわち、150から300個のアミノ酸の連なった蛋白質であり、当初は脳の抽出物から精製された。FGFは当初2種類発見され、aFGF(acidic FGFまたはFGF-1またはFGF1)とbFGF(basic FGFまたはFGF-2またはFGF2)と命名された。現在では、FGF-1、FGF-2、FGF-7(KGF)を含めて、ヒトで22種類のFGFが同定されている。これらのFGFの機能解析が進むことにより、FGFは単なる繊維芽細胞増殖因子ではなく、様々な細胞に対する細胞増殖・分化活性を有する形態形成因子、組織障害のときに働く組織修復因子、生体の恒常性を維持するための代謝調節因子、細胞に栄養分を送るために新たな血管を構築させる血管新生因子として働くことが明らかになっている。したがって、FGFは多機能分泌因子として発生生物学や再生医療の分野で注目されている。
これらのEGF並びにFGF-1の化粧品成分としての応用として、それぞれ表皮、真皮に作用して、細胞新生を促し、肌の若返りが期待されている。
FGF-7は別名KGFともよばれており、KGFは角化細胞増殖因子、角質細胞増殖因子、ケラチノサイト増殖因子とも訳されている。KGF受容体は、舌、口腔、粘膜、食道、胃、腸、唾液腺、肺、肝臓、膵臓、腎臓、膀胱、乳腺、皮膚 (毛嚢と脂腺)、眼球水晶体といった多くの組織の上皮細胞に存在していることがわかっており、この受容体型チロシンキナーゼと結合して細胞内にシグナルが送られる。 KGFの化粧品成分の応用として、発毛作用が注目されている。これは、KGFは毛乳頭細胞から産生され、毛母細胞に作用し、毛母細胞の増殖、分裂を促すことで毛髪成長させると解釈されているからである。
 以上の細胞成長因子は、化粧品成分として期待される半面、安全性や有用性の指標となる生理活性に対して警鐘を鳴らす声もあり、急速な市場拡大に対する供給側の対応も注目される。特に、EGF配合、FGF配合と化粧品の宣伝にうたっていても、用いたEGF, FGFの活性度の低さ、さらには、配合量に問題があるケースが報告されてきている。これらの問題を消費者の立場から避けるために、日本では、「日本EGF協会」が昨年7月に設立された。協会では変異原性試験による安全性の確認や生理活性などの規格化、プラスミド残留データの提示、配合率などをクリアした商品に対して協会では品質保証マークを発行している。今後、このような細胞増殖因子等を用いた化粧品の有効な用い方の研究、有効度の検定等のデータの蓄積が期待されるとともに、私たちの生活のQOLがこのような高機能な化粧品によって向上されることを切望している。

上皮細胞成長因子( human epidermal growth factor)は、一般に EGF と略称される。
EGF は53個のアミノ酸から形成される一種のタンパク質で、スタンレー・コーエン博士(1962年ノーベル賞受賞)によって発見された。EGF は血流を良くし、血管を修復し、コラーゲンの蓄積を促す。火傷による皮膚移植や、角膜切開による傷の回復促進などの目的に、医療の分野で使用されてきた。人間は年齢を重ねるにしたがって、hEGF の分泌量が減少していく。これが肌の老化現象の主な原因である。EGF を肌に補給することにより、新しいみずみずしい皮膚細胞の新生を促すことが期待される。つまり老化現象を逆行させることが期待される。
線維芽細胞成長因子(fibroblast growth factor)は線維芽細胞をはじめとするさまざまな細胞に対して増殖活性や分化誘導など多彩な作用を示す 多機能性細胞間シグナル因子である。現在までに構造上の類似性からヒトにおいて22種類からなるファミリーを 形成している。 特にFGF-1(aFGF)やFGF-2(bFGF)は中胚葉構造に 対して強力な細胞分裂促進効果を与えることが知られている。 FGF-7は別名KGFとよばれている。KGFは日本では角化細胞増殖因子、角質細胞増殖因子、ケラチノサイト増殖因子と訳されている。 KGFを化粧品成分として用いることにより発毛作用が期待されている。というのは、KGFは毛乳頭細胞から産生されており、毛母細胞に作用し、 毛母細胞の増殖、分裂を促すことで毛髪成長させていると考えれているからである。

Cosmetics having specific functions and factors are now commercially available. For example, epidermal growth factor (EGF), fibroblast growth factor (FGF)-1 FGF-7 (KGF) can be used as specific components in cosmetics recently, although several cell growth factors have been only used for therapoietic and research objects. These growth factors in cosmetics can be expected to generate new skins from the generation of new cells in the strategy of novel type of cosmetics.
Herein, the functions and activities of EGF, FGF-1 and FGF-7 are briefly summarized as follows.
EGF is a protein constructed by 53 amino acids, and promotes the cell growth to epidermal cells mainly. Dr. Cohen who awarded Nobel Prize in 1986, found that precocious eyelid opening and precocious tooth eruption were generated in earlier stage compared to the control newborn mice when crude submaxillary gland preparations were injected into the newborn mice. He purified a specific protein from crude submaxillary gland preparations, and verified that the effect of the protein for eyelid opening and tooth eruption was originated from the enhanced growth of epidermal cells from observation of microscopy of the newborn mice. Finally he named the protein as EGF. We could expect EGF as components in cosmetics will generate young skin by promotion of cell growth on epidermal layers.
FGF is a protein constructed by 150-300 amino acids, which promotes cell growth of fibroblasts. FGF was originally isolated from extract of brains. Originally two types of FGF gene family, which are acidic FGF (aFGF) and basic FGF (bFGF) were discovered.
Nowadays, 22FGF genes (FGF family) including FGF-1, FGF-2 and FGF-7 (KGF) have been identified in human. Due to the research progress of the FGF functions, FGFs have been discovered as not only the growth factors for fibloblasts, but also key factors which regulate (1) several kinds of cell growth and cell differentiation, (2) regeneration of tissues, (3) homeostatics of metabolism and promotion of angiogenesis, which supply the nutrition to the tissue cells. We are now expecting EGF and FGF-1 as components in cosmetics will generate young skin by promotion of cell growth on epidermal and dermal layers.
FGF-7 (KGF) is also named as keratinocyte growth factor. KGF receptor was localized on epidermal cells on several types of tissues such as tangue, cheek cavity, mucosa membrane, gullet, stomach, intestine, salivary, lung, kidney, pancreas, kidney, bladder, mammary gland, skin (follicle epithelium), eyeball crystal. Cell signaling in the cells are generated by the binding between KGF and KGF receptor working as a tyrosine kinase receptor.
KGF is now focused on an essential component that works as regeneration of hairs as an application of cosmetic components. Because KGF is produced on hair papilla cells, therefore, KGF is expected to grow hairs by promotion of growth and differentiation of hair matrix cells through activation of hair matrix cells.
Cell growth factors now attracted attention as new types of cosmetic components originated from molecular biology of the cells.
However, steeply generated market of the cosmetics containing those cell growth factors has been worried from consumers because of the biological quality of those newly developed cosmetics. There found such a regrettable cases that some cosmetics contain only low biological quality and quantity of the cell growth factors, although the cosmetics are advertising as their products containing EGF or FGF. Considering these environment, Japan EGF Association was established as a non-profit organization in July 2006 in Japan. This is to verify the production of cosmetics containing high quality and quantity of EGF and FGF.
Japan EGF Association issues the quality mark for the cosmetic products which show safety from mutagenesis assay and residual content of plasmid, and contain the growth factors having enough biological standard activity and contents.
We are now hoping that these kind of high-tech cosmetics will contribute to our promotion of QOL as well as scientific research for the usage of cell growth factor in cosmetics.
