Gene Information

human ... EGFR(1956)

General description

EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor) belongs to the ErbB family of receptor tyrosine kinases. It is also known as ErbB1/HER1 (human epidermal growth factor receptor). It is located on chromosome 7p11.2. It has a large extracellular ligand-binding domain, a single transmembrane segment, an intracellular juxtamembrane segment, a tyrosine kinase domain and a carboxy-terminal tail.
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR, ErbB1) is a transmembrane protein that exerts tyrosine kinase activity upon ligand induced activation. EGFR can be activated by binding EGF or at least six other structurally related protein ligands, including transforming growth factor α (TGFα), heparin-binding EGF-like growth factor (HB-EGF), betacellulin (BTC), amphiregulin, epiregulin and epigen. The gene encoding it is localized on human chromosome 7p11.2.

Immunogen

Peptide sequence around aa. 1068-1072 (R-Y-S-S-D), according to the protein EGFR.

Application

Anti-EGFR (Ab-1070) antibody has been used in immunohistochemistry.

Biochem/physiol Actions

EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor) plays an important role in ligand binding, dimerization and autophosphorylation. It also plays an important role in several procarcinogenic cancers like gastric cancer. It controls various functions of epithelial cell. It modulates the actions in bacterial infection and is associated with the initiation of macrophage.
Upon activation by ligands, epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR, ErbB1) initiates a signaling cascade which includes dimerization and internalization, tyrosine phosphorylation, DNA synthesis of target genes, and, ultimately, cell proliferation. EGFR signaling plays a role in the growth and differentiation of normal cells, but elevated EGFR activity is correlated with the development and pathogenesis of certain cancers.
