The EGFR Multispecies In-Cell ELISA Colorimetric Detection Kit is a simple method for quantifying intracellular proteins in whole cells.
Principle of the method
To perform the assay, cells are first plated, treated and fixed. Expression of the protein(s) of interest is monitored in wells of a microplate using target-specific primary antibodies (see the Important Product Information section for antibodies included in each kit) and a horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-conjugated detection reagent. The kit is supplied with a whole-cell stain to control for differences in cell plating, which is important when measuring relative levels of a protein with different treatments or assessing its post-translational modification (PTM) form. After staining, the results are analyzed by normalizing the absorbance (HRP activity) values to cell number, which adjusts for the cell plating differences among the wells.
Each manufactured lot of this ELISA kit is quality tested for criteria such as sensitivity, specificity, precision, and lot-to-lot consistency. See manual for more information on validation.
The protein encoded by this gene is a transmembrane glycoprotein that is a member of the protein kinase superfamily. This protein is a receptor for members of the epidermal growth factor family. EGFR is a cell surface protein that binds to epidermal growth factor. Binding of the protein to a ligand induces receptor dimerization and tyrosine autophosphorylation and leads to cell proliferation. Mutations in this gene are associated with lung cancer. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode different protein isoforms have been found for this gene.
