Gene Background Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) is a type of membrane glycoprotein, and belongs to the epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor family. HER2 plays a key role in development, cell proliferation and differentiation. HER2 has been reported to associate with malignancy and a poor prognosis in numerous carcinomas, including breast, prostate, ovarian, lung cancers and so on. HER2 is activated by dimerization and not activated by EGF, TGF-alpha and amphiregulin. Interaction with PTK6 increases its intrinsic kinase activity.It is heterodimer with EGFR, ERBB3 and ERBB4. HER2 associates with the 5'-TCAAATTC-3' sequence in the PTGS2/COX-2 promoter and activates its transcription. It implicated in transcriptional activation of CDKN1A and the function of the protein involves STAT3 and SRC. And also it involved in the transcription of rRNA genes by RNA Pol I and enhances protein synthesis and cell growth.

Target Details

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.

COX2 protein levels and nuclear COX2 expression were correlated with a poor prognosis of CRC patients. COX2 expression was positively associated with HER2 expression. PMID: 29873317
  3. In patients with HER2-positive advanced breast cancer who have been heavily pretreated with anti-HER2 agents and cytotoxic chemotherapy, trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1) is well tolerated and provided a meaningful progression-free survival of 6 months and an overall survival that has not been reached. PMID: 29326401

  5. Although ST6GalI overexpression increased HER2 sialylation, corresponding to decreased HER2 phosphorylation, high alpha2,6sialylation enhanced Akt and ERK phosphorylation levels compared to those in the vector cell line; ST6GalI knockdown had the opposite effects. Collectively, these results implicated a functional role of ST6GalI in promoting tumor cell progression and trastuzumab resistance. PMID: 30226606

  12. Study showed the expression levels of Gli1 and HER2 were significantly higher in gastric cancer, and they are positively related. HER2 may regulate Gli1 by Akt-mTOR-p70S6K pathway. PMID: 29321573
  13. The combination of immunohistochemical expression of BRCA1, ER, PR, and HER-2/neu and clinicopathological details may be helpful in predicting the individuals more likely to carry BRCA1 mutations and thus selecting the candidate and family members for genetic screening for BRCA1 mutations.

These observations indicated that genetic alterations synergistic with essential respects of sex determination influence glioma biology and patients outcomes. PMID: 30153912
  25. The survival rates in this study are equal to the documented global rates; nodal disease burden emerged as the most important prognostic factor. In addition, in EBCs, a lack of hormone receptor expression and in LABC, Her2neu overexpression appear to worsen the outcome. PMID: 30147088

  33. In the largest series reported to date, patients with HER2-amplified m17 cancers treated with trastuzumab have outcomes comparable to patients from the large phase III adjuvant trastuzumab trials who were HER2-positive, supporting the critical role of HER2-directed therapy in this patient population.

Proteins are sensitive to heat, and freeze-drying can preserve the activity of the majority of proteins. It improves protein stability, extends storage time, and reduces shipping costs. However, freeze-drying can also lead to the loss of the active portion of the protein and cause aggregation and denaturation issues. Nonetheless, these adverse effects can be minimized by incorporating protective agents such as stabilizers, additives, and excipients, and by carefully controlling various lyophilization conditions.

Commonly used protectant include saccharides, polyols, polymers, surfactants, some proteins and amino acids etc. We usually add 8% (mass ratio by volume) of trehalose and mannitol as lyoprotectant. Trehalose can significantly prevent the alter of the protein secondary structure, the extension and aggregation of proteins during freeze-drying process; mannitol is also a universal applied protectant and fillers, which can reduce the aggregation of certain proteins after lyophilization.

Our protein products do not contain carrier protein or other additives (such as bovine serum albumin (BSA), human serum albumin (HSA) and sucrose, etc., and when lyophilized with the solution with the lowest salt content, they often cannot form A white grid structure, but a small amount of protein is deposited in the tube during the freeze-drying process, forming a thin or invisible transparent protein layer.

Reminder: Before opening the tube cap, we recommend that you quickly centrifuge for 20-30 seconds in a small centrifuge, so that the protein attached to the tube cap or the tube wall can be aggregated at the bottom of the tube. Our quality control procedures ensure that each tube contains the correct amount of protein, and although sometimes you can't see the protein powder, the amount of protein in the tube is still very precise.
