|Other Names||Receptor tyrosine-protein kinase erbB-3, Proto-oncogene-like protein c-ErbB-3, Tyrosine kinase-type cell surface receptor HER3, ERBB3, HER3|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7630a was selected from the N-term region of human ErbB3 . A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Tyrosine-protein kinase that plays an essential role as cell surface receptor for neuregulins. Binds to neuregulin-1 (NRG1) and is activated by it; ligand-binding increases phosphorylation on tyrosine residues and promotes its association with the p85 subunit of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PubMed:20682778). May also be activated by CSPG5 (PubMed:15358134).|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Epithelial tissues and brain.|

ErbB3, a member of the EGF receptor family, binds and is activated by neuregulins and NTAK. It potentially forms a heterodimer with each of the other ERBB receptors. This protein is predominantly expressed in epithelial tissues and brain. The cytoplasmic part of the receptor may interact with the SH2 or SH3 domains of many signal-transducing proteins. Ligand-binding may increase phosphorylation on tyrosine residues and promote its association with the p85 subunit of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase ErbB3 is overexpressed in a subset of human mammary tumors.
