Overview

Amphiregulin is a member of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) family. It binds to several receptors including EGFR/ErbB1, HER2/ErbB2, HER3/ErbB3, and HER4/ErbB4, which activates Ras/Raf/MAPK and PI3K/AKT pathways. This results in cell proliferation, apoptosis resistance, and invasive behaviour (Normanno et al.). The expression of amphiregulin is induced by tissue injury and inflammation. Amphiregulin promotes mammary development, trophoblast growth, lung and kidney branching morphogenesis, and keratinocyte proliferation. It stimulates the growth of most cell types, including normal and transformed mammary epithelial cells, and malignant cells of the colon, prostate, cervix, and pancreas (Berasain & Avila).

Data and Publications

Data

(A) The biological activity of Human Recombinant Amphiregulin was tested by its ability to promote the proliferation of BALB/c 3T3 cells. Cell proliferation was measured using a fluorometric assay method. The EC50 is defined as the effective concentration of the growth factor at which cell proliferation is at 50% of maximum. The EC50 in the above example is less than 0.2 ng/mL. (B) 2 μg of Human Recombinant Amphiregulin was resolved with SDS-PAGE under reducing (+) and non-reducing (-) conditions and visualized by Coomassie Blue staining.
