Mouse HB-EGF Antibody

(1 citations)   
  • Species Reactivity
    Mouse
  • Specificity
    Detects mouse HB-EGF in direct ELISAs and Western Blots. In direct ELISAs, less than 30% cross-reactivity with recombinant human HB‑EGF is observed and less then 2% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse Amphiregulin is observed.

Data Examples
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.
Immunohistochemistry
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.
