Antibody Code: NK052-4

Antibody Target Type: Pan-specific

Protein UniProt: P00533

Protein SigNET: P00533

Antibody Type: Polyclonal

Antibody Host Species: Rabbit

Antibody Immunogen Source: Human EGFR (ErbB1) sequence peptide Cat. No.: PE-01ATU90
Antibody Immunogen Sequence: CEYLRVAPQSSEFIGA

Antibody Immunogen Description: Corresponds to amino acid residues E1196 to A1210; C-terminus

Production Method: The immunizing peptide was produced by solid phase synthesis on a multipep peptide synthesizer and purified by reverse-phase hplc chromatography. Purity was assessed by analytical hplc and the amino acid sequence confirmed by mass spectrometry analysis. This peptide was coupled to KLH prior to immunization into rabbits. New Zealand White rabbits were subcutaneously injected with KLH-coupled immunizing peptide every 4 weeks for 4 months. The sera from these animals was applied onto an agarose column to which the immunogen peptide was thio-linked. Antibody was eluted from the column with 0.1 M glycine, pH 2.5. Subsequently, the antibody solution was neutralized to pH 7.0 with saturated Tris.

Antibody Modification: Unconjugated. Contact KInexus if you are interest in having the antibody biotinylated or coupled with fluorescent dyes.

Scientific Background: EGFR (ERBB1, HER1) is a protein-tyrosine kinase of the TK group and EGFR family. EGFR regulates cell proliferation, division, motility, survival, and has other roles in tissue development. It is activated by binding epidermal growth factor (EGF) and transforming growth factor-alpha (TGFa), which induce dimerization and autophosphorylation. Phosphorylation of Y270 stimulates interaction with EGFR. Phosphorylation of Y869 increases phosphotransferase activity and induces interaction with COX2. Phosphorylation of Y1016 increases phosphotransferase activity and induces interaction with GrbB2, PLCg1, PTPN11 (SHP2), RasGAP, and Vav2. Phosphorylation of Y1069 increases phosphotransferase activity and induces interaction with Cbl. Phosphorylation of Y1092 induces interaction with PLCg1, PTPN6 (SHP1) and Ras-GAP. Phosphorylation of Y1110 induces interaction with Ras-GAP. Phosphorylation of Y1172 increases phosphotransferase activity and induces interaction with Dok1, EGFR, RasGAP, PTPN11 (SHP2), and Vav2. Phosphorylation of Y1197 increases phosphotransferase activity and induces interaction with Cbl, EGR, PLCg1, RasGAP, SH3KBP1, Shc1, and PTPN6 (SHP1). EGFR is inhibited by phosphorylation at T678,S695 and S1026. Phosphorylation of T693, S695, S1070, S1071, and S1190 contributes to receptor internalization. EGFR is a known oncoprotein (OP). Cancer-related mutations in human tumours point to a gain of function of the protein kinase. Constitutive activation of EGFR kinase activity has been seen with the mutations of V689M, E1005R+D1006K. The active form of the protein kinase normally acts to promote tumour cell proliferation.
