IMPORTANT: Sodium azide forms explosive compounds with heavy metals. These products contain <0.05% (w/w) azide which with repeated contact with lead and copper commonly found in plumbing drains may result in the buildup of shock sensitive compounds. Dispose in accordance with regulations from your institute.

Description:

Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR; ErbB-1; HER1 in humans) is the cell-surface receptor for members of the epidermal growth factor family (EGF family) of extracellular protein ligands. EGF R signaling regulates multiple biological functions including cell proliferation, differentiation, motility, and apoptosis. EGF R is over-expressed in a wide variety of tumors and is the target of several anti-cancer drugs. Soluble receptors consisting of the extracellular ligand binding domain are generated by alternate splicing in human and mouse. Diseases associated with EGFR include Inflammatory Skin and Bowel Disease and Giant Cell Glioblastoma.
