Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified B IP IH
The ErbB-2 proto-oncogene, also called Neu, EGFR-2 or HER-2, is a member of the transmembrane receptor tyrosine kinase family, which also includes EGF receptor and EGFR-3 (HER-3 or ErbB-3). Although, ErbB-2 does not have any known high-affinity ligands, its kinase activity can be activated without ligand by either overexpression or heteroassociation with other members of the ErbB family. Amplification of the ErbB-2 gene and overexpression of its product has been detected in almost 40% of primary human breast tumors, which correlates with poor prognosis in node positive breast cancer. ErbB-2 overexpression is also observed in ovarian, gastric, salivary and non-small cell lung carcinomas. Because of this, ErbB-2 is one of the major drug targets for breast cancer and other cancer treatments.
