The epidermal growth factor receptor
(EGF R) subfamily of receptor tyrosine kinases comprises four members: EGF R
(also known as HER1, ErbB1 or ErbB), ErbB2 (Neu, HER-2), ErbB3 (HER-3), and
ErbB4 (HER-4). All family members are type I transmembrane glycoprotein that
has an extracellular domain which contains two cysteine-rich domains separated
by a spacer region that is involved in ligand-binding, and a cytoplasmic domain
which has a membrane-proximal tyrosine kinase domain and a C-terminal tail with
multiple tyrosine autophosphorylation sites. The human EGF R gene encodes a
1210 amino acid (aa) residue precursor with a 24 aa putative signal peptide, a
621 aa extracellular domain, a 23 aa transmembrane domain, and a 542 aa
cytoplasmic domain. EGF R has been shown to bind a subset of the EGF family
ligands, including EGF, amphiregulin, TGFa , betacellulin, epiregulin,
heparin-binding EGF and neuregulin-2 in the absence of a co-receptor. Ligand
binding induces EGF R homodimerization as well as heterdimerization with ErbB2,
resulting in kinase activation, tyrosine phosphorylation and cell signaling.
EGF R can also be recruited to form heterodimers with the ligand-activated
ErbB3 or ErbB4. EGF R signaling has been shown to regulate multiple biological
functions including cell proliferation, differentiation, motility and
apoptosis. In addition, EGF R signaling has also been shown to play a role in
EGFR produced in CHO cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 860 amino acids (25-645 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 95.5 kDa (Migrates at 100-150 on SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions). EGFR is expressed with a 239 amino acid hIgG-His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
