The relationship between protein concentration of untreated and λ phosphatase-treated Calu-3 cell lysates, and the absorbance at 450 nM using PathScan® Phospho-HER2/ErbB2 (Tyr1221/1222) Sandwich ELISA Antibody Pair #7817 is shown.
Capture and detection antibodies are stored at 4°C. HRP-linked secondary reagent is stored at -20°C.
CST's PathScan® Phospho-HER2/ErbB2 (Tyr1221/1222) Sandwich ELISA Antibody Pair is offered as an economical alternative to our PathScan® Phospho-HER2/ErbB2 (Tyr1221/1222) Sandwich ELISA Kit #7148. Capture and Detection antibodies (100X stocks) and HRP-conjugated secondary antibody (1000X stock) are supplied. Sufficient reagents are supplied for 4 x 96 well ELISAs. The HER2/ErbB2 Capture Antibody is coated on a 96 well microplate in PBS overnight. After blocking, cell lysates are added followed by a Phospho-HER2/ErbB2 (Tyr1221/1222) Detection Antibody and anti-rabbit IgG, HRP conjugated antibody. HRP substrate, TMB, is added for color development. The magnitude of the absorbance for this developed color is proportional to the quantity of Phospho-HER2/ErbB2 (Tyr1221/1222) protein.
Antibodies in kit are custom formulations specific to kit.
For Antibody Pair specificity and sensitivity, please refer to the corresponding PathScan® Sandwich ELISA Kit. Note: This antibody pair detects proteins from the indicated species, as determined through in-house testing, but may also detect homologous proteins from other species.
The ErbB2 (HER2) proto-oncogene encodes a 185 kDa transmembrane, receptor-like glycoprotein with intrinsic tyrosine kinase activity (1). While ErbB2 lacks an identified ligand, ErbB2 kinase activity can be activated in the absence of a ligand when overexpressed and through heteromeric associations with other ErbB family members (2). Amplification of the ErbB2 gene and overexpression of its product are detected in almost 40% of human breast cancers (3). Binding of the c-Cbl ubiquitin ligase to ErbB2 at Tyr1112 leads to ErbB2 poly-ubiquitination and enhances degradation of this kinase (4). ErbB2 is a key therapeutic target in the treatment of breast cancer and other carcinomas and targeting the regulation of ErbB2 degradation by the c-Cbl-regulated proteolytic pathway is one potential therapeutic strategy. Phosphorylation of the kinase domain residue Tyr877 of ErbB2 (homologous to Tyr416 of pp60c-Src) may be involved in regulating ErbB2 biological activity. The major autophosphorylation sites in ErbB2 are Tyr1248 and Tyr1221/1222; phosphorylation of these sites couples ErbB2 to the Ras-Raf-MAP kinase signal transduction pathway (1,5).
