Recombinant Mouse ErbB4/Her4 Fc Chimera Protein, CF
Recombinant Mouse ErbB4/Her4 Fc Chimera Protein, CF Summary
(Gln26 - Val657)
(Glu98 - Lys330)
CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our recombinant proteins. Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration. The carrier free version does not contain BSA.
In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or as an ELISA standard. In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA could interfere.

ErbB4, also called Her4 (human epidermal growth factor receptor 4) in humans, is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is a member of the ErbB family of tyrosine kinase receptors named for a viral oncogene (1, 2). ErbB family members serve as receptors for the EGF family of growth factors (1, 2). Mouse ErbB4 contains a 25 amino acid (aa) signal sequence, a 626 aa extracellular domain (ECD), a 24 aa transmembrane region, and a 617 aa cytoplasmic domain (3). Several ErbB4 isoforms exist (4 - 6). Isoforms JM-a, b, and d contain extracellular juxtamembrane aa insertions ranging from 13 - 36 aa in length. Isoform CYT-1 contains a cytoplasmic PI3K binding site absent in CYT-2. The mouse ECD (JM-a isoform) shares 99%, 99%, 98%, 96%, 95%, 91% and 80% aa identity with human, rat, equine, opossum, platypus, chicken and Xenopus ErbB4, respectively. Isoforms JM-a and JM-d can be proteolytically cleaved by TACE/ADAM-17 (TNF-alpha converting enzyme) upon ligand binding (7). Following release of the ECD, the cytoplasmic portion is further cleaved by a gamma -secretase and translocated to the nucleus (8). Recombinant ECD is able to compete with cellular ErbB4 for ligands (9). After ligand binding, the soluble ECD forms homodimers, and then may form hetero-multimers with ErbB2 (10, 11). ErbB4 ligands include the neuregulins, some of which (NRG-1 and -2) also bind ErbB3. Other ligands such as epiregulin, betacellulin and heparin-binding EGF-like growth factor (HB-EGF) are shared by ErbB1 (1, 12). ErbB4 is expressed in the heart (JM-b isoform only), kidney (JM-a isoform only), pituitary, brain and breast (1, 2, 13). It plays important roles in heart, breast and neuronal development (13). In human ErbB4 participates in the NRG-1-mediated downregulation of NMDA receptor activity that occurs in schizophrenia (14).
