InVivoMAb anti-human EGFR
The 225 monoclonal antibody reacts with an epitope on the extracellular domain of human EGFR belongs to the ErbB family of receptors. EGFR signaling is activated upon binding one of its ligands including epidermal growth factor (EGF), transforming growth factor α (TGF α), Amphiregulin, and heparin binding EGF (HB-EGF). Upon activation, EGFR transitions from an inactive monomeric form to an active homodimer. This initiates several downstream signal transduction cascades including the MAPK, Akt and JNK pathways, leading to DNA synthesis and cell proliferation. EGFR overexpression or constitutive activation are associated with many cancers. For this reason, anti-EGFR monoclonal antibody mediated immunotherapies are currently being explored as cancer treatments. The 225 antibody has been reported to neutralize EGFR signaling.
