Detection of human HER2 expression on the human HER2-CT26 stable cell line using Trastuzumab, a monoclonal antibodies specific for human HER2 (Cat.#A1019).
Her-2, also called Neu and ErbB2 (human epidermal growth factor receptor 2), is a type I membrane protein that is a member of the ErbB family of receptor tyrosine kinases. ErbB family members include EGFR, ErbB2 (Neu, Her-2), ErbB3 (Her-3), and ErbB4 (Her-4) and they serve as receptors for the epidermal growth factor (EGF) family of growth factors. Her-2 is widely expressed in epithelial cells and is over-expressed on a large population of breast cancer cells. Comparing to the other members of the ErbB family, Her-2 is unique in that it has no known ligands and it can heterodimerize with the other members of the ErbB family to form higher affinity signaling complexes. Mature human Her-2 consists of 1233 amino acids (aa) with a 630 aa extracellular domain, a 23 aa transmembrane region, and a 580 aa cytoplasmic domain. Her-2 may play a variety of roles in development and regulation of cell growth and differentiation (1-6).
