Technical Data
Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (erbB, EGFR) (FITC)
The EGF receptor (EGFR), a 180kD transmembrane tyrosine kinase, is part of the ErbB family which mediate ligand induced signaling as heterodimers. Ligand binding results in activation of the intrinsic kinase activity and autophosphorylation on tyrosine residues within and surrounding the kinase domain. The phospho-tyrosine residues serve as docking sites for adapter proteins that nucleate signaling complexes that result in the activation of the Ras, PI-3 kinase and PLC-g pathways. EGFR, which transduces the biological effects of EGF and TGF-a, is frequently over-expressed in solid tumors.
