Description

General description

Monoclonal Anti-Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) Receptor (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the hybridoma produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from an immunized mouse. The receptor for epidermal growth factor is an integral cell membrane protein of 170 kDa, which spans the membranes of a wide range of normal and malignant epithelial cells. A close similarity has been found between the sequence of the avian erythroblastic leukemia viral oncogene homolog (v-erb-B) and the cytoplasmic and transmembrane part of the EGF-R (truncated EGF-R).

Specificity

Localizes blood type A-related determinants on various glycoproteins and glycolipids in addition to specific EGF receptor determinants (only observed in human tissue). Binds an external carbohydrate on the receptor and does not block EGF binding.

Immunogen

human carcinoma cell line A431, which expresses high levels of EGF receptors.

Application

Applications in which this antibody has been used successfully, and the associated peer-reviewed papers, are given below.
Immunohistochemistry (1 paper)
Western Blotting (1 paper)

May be used to purify EGF receptor, for structural and functional studies of the receptor and for investigation of cell transformation versus oncogenesis.

Monoclonal Anti-Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor antibody produced in mouse has been used in
• enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)
• immunoprecipitation
• immunoaffinity
• immunohistochemistry
• western blotting

Biochem/physiol Actions

The members of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGF R) or the ErbB receptor family have been identified as useful biomarkers and targets for cancer therapy. The EGFR family includes four receptor tyrosine kinases, EGF R (ErbB1), ErbB2 (Neu), ErbB3, and ErbB4. EGF R binds EGF and induces tyrosine phosphorylation leading to proliferation of cells. EGF R is present on many cell types of epithelial and mesenchymal lineages. EGF R is capable of binding transforming growth factor-α and heparin-binding EGF in addition to EGF. There are numerous effector molecule activated by EGF R that result in a variety of biological processes such as morphogenesis, cell motility, apoptosis, differentiation and organ repair and maintenance. Deregulation of EGF R signaling is implicated in progression of a wide variety of tumors, invasion and metastasis.
