Species enclosed in parentheses are predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology.
Specificity / Sensitivity
Each phospho-EGF Receptor antibody recognizes only the phosphorylated form of EGF Receptor at the indicated sites. The control EGF Receptor antibody recognizes both the phosphorylated and nonphosphorylated forms of EGF receptor.

The Phospho-EGF Receptor Antibody Sampler Kit provides an economical means of evaluating the EGF Receptor and several phosphorylation sites that are involved in its activation. The kit contains enough primary and secondary antibodies to perform four Western blot experiments.
Source / Purification
Antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with synthetic phosphopeptides corresponding to residues surrounding Tyr992, Tyr1045 or Tyr1068 of human EGF receptor. EGF Receptor Antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a fusion protein containing the cytoplasmic domain of human EGF receptor. Polyclonal antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
The epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor is a transmembrane tyrosine kinase that belongs to the HER/ErbB protein family. Ligand binding results in receptor dimerization, autophosphorylation, activation of downstream signaling, internalization, and lysosomal degradation (1,2). Phosphorylation of EGF receptor (EGFR) at Tyr845 in the kinase domain is implicated in stabilizing the activation loop, maintaining the active state enzyme, and providing a binding surface for substrate proteins (3,4). c-Src is involved in phosphorylation of EGFR at Tyr845 (5). The SH2 domain of PLCγ binds at phospho-Tyr992, resulting in activation of PLCγ-mediated downstream signaling (6). Phosphorylation of EGFR at Tyr1045 creates a major docking site for the adaptor protein c-Cbl, leading to receptor ubiquitination and degradation following EGFR activation (7,8). The GRB2 adaptor protein binds activated EGFR at phospho-Tyr1068 (9). A pair of phosphorylated EGFR residues (Tyr1148 and Tyr1173) provide a docking site for the Shc scaffold protein, with both sites involved in MAP kinase signaling activation (2). Phosphorylation of EGFR at specific serine and threonine residues attenuates EGFR kinase activity. EGFR carboxy-terminal residues Ser1046 and Ser1047 are phosphorylated by CaM kinase II; mutation of either of these serines results in upregulated EGFR tyrosine autophosphorylation (10).
