Western blot analysis of HER-4 was performed by loading 25 ug of mouse brain cell lysates onto an SDS polyacrylamide gel. Proteins were transferred to a PVDF membrane and blocked at 4°C overnight. The membrane was probed with a HER-4 monoclonal antibody (Product # MA5-12888) at a dilution of 1:100 overnight at 4°C, washed in TBST, and probed with an HRP-conjugated secondary antibody for 1 hr at room temperature in the dark. Chemiluminescent detection was performed using Pierce ECL Plus Western Blotting Substrate (Product # 32132). Results show a band at ~180kDa.

MA5-12885 targets HER-4 in WB, FACS and IP applications and shows reactivity with Human, mouse, and Rat samples.
The MA5-12885 immunogen is extracellular fragment of recombinant human c-erbB-4/HER-4 oncoprotein.
c-erbB-4 is the fourth member of class I receptor kinase family (ErbB). Down regulation of ErbB-4 in estrogen receptor-positive cancer cells inhibits proliferation.
