Target

  • Function

    Protein tyrosine kinase that is part of several cell surface receptor complexes, but that apparently needs a coreceptor for ligand binding. Essential component of a neuregulin-receptor complex, although neuregulins do not interact with it alone. GP30 is a potential ligand for this receptor. Regulates outgrowth and stabilization of peripheral microtubules (MTs). Upon ERBB2 activation, the MEMO1-RHOA-DIAPH1 signaling pathway elicits the phosphorylation and thus the inhibition of GSK3B at cell membrane. This prevents the phosphorylation of APC and CLASP2, allowing its association with the cell membrane. In turn, membrane-bound APC allows the localization of MACF1 to the cell membrane, which is required for microtubule capture and stabilization.
    In the nucleus is involved in transcriptional regulation. Associates with the 5'-TCAAATTC-3' sequence in the PTGS2/COX-2 promoter and activates its transcription. Implicated in transcriptional activation of CDKN1A; the function involves STAT3 and SRC. Involved in the transcription of rRNA genes by RNA Pol I and enhances protein synthesis and cell growth.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in a variety of tumor tissues including primary breast tumors and tumors from small bowel, esophagus, kidney and mouth.
  • Involvement in disease

    Hereditary diffuse gastric cancer
    Glioma
    Ovarian cancer
    Lung cancer
    Gastric cancer
    Chromosomal aberrations involving ERBB2 may be a cause gastric cancer. Deletions within 17q12 region producing fusion transcripts with CDK12, leading to CDK12-ERBB2 fusion leading to truncated CDK12 protein not in-frame with ERBB2.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Tyr protein kinase family. EGF receptor subfamily.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    Autophosphorylated. Autophosphorylation occurs in trans, i.e. one subunit of the dimeric receptor phosphorylates tyrosine residues on the other subunit (Probable). Ligand-binding increases phosphorylation on tyrosine residues (PubMed:27134172). Signaling via SEMA4C promotes phosphorylation at Tyr-1248 (PubMed:17554007). Dephosphorylated by PTPN12 (PubMed:27134172).
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm. Nucleus and Cell membrane. Cytoplasm, perinuclear region. Nucleus. Translocation to the nucleus requires endocytosis, probably endosomal sorting and is mediated by importin beta-1/KPNB1.

Customer reviews and Q&As

Answer

Thank you very much for your call yesterday and for your patience while I've been in touch with the lab regarding your enquiry.

The lab protocol is:

1. Heat the samples to 95-100°C for 10 minutes; cool on ice to room temperature.
2. Load 20-100μg sample of cell lysis for every lane onto SDS-PAGE gel.
3. Electrophoresis at constant 100 Volts for 1 to 2 hours until the protein dye reaches the bottom of the gel.
4. Electrotransfer to nitrocellulose or PVDF membrane using transfer buffer at constant 30 Volts overnight at 4°C.

In general we recommend following the instructions of the electrophoresis and transfer apparatus, but I hope that these will be useful guidelines.
