Scientific Data

Western Blot Detection of Mouse HB-EGF antibody by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Mouse HB‑EGF by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of C2C12 mouse myoblast cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Mouse HB-EGF Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF8239) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for HB-EGF at approximately 28 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

HB‑EGF in Mouse Embryo. HB-EGF was detected in immersion fixed frozen sections of mouse embryo (15 d.p.c.) using Sheep Anti-Mouse HB-EGF Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF8239) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Sheep HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS019) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to developing central nervous system. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Frozen Tissue Sections.

Background: HB-EGF

Heparin-binding EGF-like growth factor, HB-EGF, is a 19-23 kDa glycoprotein, member of the EGF family of mitogens that exists in multiple forms as a result of heterogenous O-glycosylation.  HB-EGF is a growth factor that mediates its effects via EGFR, ERBB2 and ERBB4. It is required for normal cardiac valve formation and normal heart function and promotes smooth muscle cell proliferation. HB-EGF may be involved in macrophage-mediated cellular proliferation. The cDNA for mouse Proheparin-binding EGF-like growth factor encodes a 208 amino acid residue transmembrane protein that is proteolytically cleaved to generate the soluble HB‑EGF. Like EGF, TGF-alpha, and AR, HB-EGF binds to the EGF receptor and activates the receptor tyrosine kinase. It has been suggested that the differential activities found for HB-EGF compared to EGF may be mediated by the heparin-binding properties of HB-EGF.
