N-terminal sequence Analysis
Predicted Molecular Mass
94-104 kDa, under reducing conditions.
Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA. When Human EGFR (Research Grade Cetuximab Biosimilar) Antibody (Catalog # MAB9577) is immobilized at 1 µg/mL (100 µL/well), Recombinant Human EGFR His-tag (Catalog # 11302-ER) binds with an ED50 of 1.25-15.0 ng/mL.

Recombinant Human EGFR His-tag Protein Binding Activity.
When Human EGFR (Research Grade Cetuximab Biosimilar) Antibody (MAB9577) is immobilized at 1 µg/mL (100 µL/well), Recombinant Human EGFR His-tag (Catalog # 11302-ER) binds with an ED50 of 1.25-15.0 ng/mL.
Recombinant Human EGFR His-tag Protein SDS-PAGE.
2 μg/lane of Recombinant Human EGFR His-tag Protein (Catalog # 11302-ER) was resolved with SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) and non-reducing (NR) conditions and visualized by Coomassie® Blue staining, showing bands at 94-104 kDa.
Formulation, Preparation and Storage
What does CF mean?
CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our
Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant
protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration.
The carrier free version does not contain BSA.
What formulation is right for me?
In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or
as an ELISA standard.
In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose.
Reconstitute at 500 μg/mL in PBS.

Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), also known as HER-1 and ErbB1, is a member of a subfamily of receptor tyrosine kinases comprised of four members: EGFR, ErbB2 (Neu, HER-2), ErbB3 (HER-3), and ErbB4 (HER-4). All family members are type I transmembrane glycoproteins with an extracellular domain (ECD) containing two cysteine-rich domains separated by a spacer region and a cytoplasmic domain containing a tyrosine kinase domain followed by multiple tyrosine autophosphorylation sites (1, 2). Several soluble isoforms lacking the intracellular domain are generated by alternate splicing, along with a tumor specific mutant EGFRvIII, are known to exist (3-5). The ECD of mature, full-length EGFR shares 88% and 89% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat EGFR, respectively. EGFR binds a subset of the EGF family ligands, including EGF, amphiregulin, TGF-alpha, betacellulin, epiregulin, HB-EGF, and epigen (1, 2). Ligand binding induces EGFR homodimerization as well as heterodimerization with ErbB2, resulting in kinase activation, heterodimerization tyrosine phosphorylation and cell signaling (6-8). EGFR can also be recruited to form heterodimers with the ligand‑activated ErbB3 or ErbB4. EGFR signaling regulates multiple biological functions including cell proliferation, differentiation, motility, and apoptosis (6-8). EGFR is overexpressed in a wide variety of tumors, with EGFRvIII overexpressed particularly in glioblastoma multiforme (GMB) and is the target of several anti-cancer therapeutics (5,9,10).
