General description

The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR; ErbB-1; HER1 in humans) is the cell-surface receptor for members of the epidermal growth factor family (EGF-family) of extracellular protein ligands. The epidermal growth factor receptor is a member of the ErbB family of receptors, a subfamily of four closely related receptor tyrosine kinases: EGFR (ErbB-1), HER2/c-neu (ErbB-2), Her 3 (ErbB-3) and Her 4 (ErbB-4). Mutations affecting EGFR expression or activity could result in cancer. EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor) exists on the cell surface and is activated by binding of its specific ligands, including epidermal growth factor and transforming growth factor α (TGFα). Upon activation by its growth factor ligands, EGFR undergoes a transition from an inactive monomeric form to an active homodimer. In addition to forming homodimers after ligand binding, EGFR may pair with another member of the ErbB receptor family, such as ErbB2/Her2/neu, to create an activated heterodimer. EGFR dimerization stimulates its intrinsic intracellular protein-tyrosine kinase activity. As a result, autophosphorylation of five tyrosine (Y) residues in the C-terminal domain of EGFR occurs.


Recognizes the EGFR, Mr 180 kDa.
Reported to detect rat and hamster.


Ovalbumin conjugated synthetic peptide (ETKPNGIFKGPTAENAEYLRVAPPSSEFIGA) corresponding to amino acids 1156-1186 of the processed mouse EGF receptor (EGFR) C-terminal domain (Accession number Q01279). The immunizing sequence shares 28/31 identity with the human EGF receptor sequence.


Anti-EGFR Antibody detects level of EGFR & has been published & validated for use in IP & WB.
4 µg of a previous lot immunoprecipitated the EGFR from 500 µg of a 3T3/A31 RIPA cell lysate.
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin) Analysis: A 1:500 Dilution of this antibody detected EGFR in human placenta tissue sections.


Routinely evaluated by western blot on a mouse 3T3/A31 RIPA cell lysate.

Western Blot Analysis:
0.5-2 µg/mL of this lot detected the EGFR from a mouse 3T3/A31 RIPA cell lysate.
