Monoclonal Anti-EGFR (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the hybridoma 225 produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells (NS-1-503 cells) and splenocytes from BALB/c mice immunized with partially purified EGF receptors from A-431 cells. The receptor for epidermal growth factor (EGF) is an integral cell membrane glycoprotein of 170 kDa, which spans the membranes of a wide range of normal and malignant epithelial cells. The EGF receptor has an intracellular domain that exhibits tyrosine kinase activity.
partially purified EGF receptors from human A-431 cells.
Monoclonal Anti-EGF Receptor antibody has been used in antibody-nanoparticle conjugation.
Monoclonal Anti-EGF Receptor antibody is suitable for use in immunoprecipitation (4-8 μg using cell lysate of A431 cells).
EGFR is a tyrosine kinase receptor that regulates cellular several functions such as growth, blood vessel formation, metastasis and invasion. Alterations in EGFR expression have been associated with a wide range of cancers. Thus, drugs that target EGFR signaling have important therapeutic applications in cancer .
EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptors) protein tyrosine kinase is activated when EGF binds the extracellular binding domain. The first detectable response is the autophosphorylation of the C-terminal tyrosine followed by phosphorylation of other endogenous substrates.
