The Chi-square test was used to determine the association between ErbB 1 and ErbB2 genes amplification.
Localization of neuregulin isoforms and erbB receptors in myelinat ing glial cells.
The findings by Doug Lauffenburger, the Ford Professor of Bioengineering, head of MIT's Department of Biological Engineering and an affiliate member of MIT's Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, have suggested that combining drugs that target AXL and ErbB receptors could offer a better way to fight tumors.
They also showed that Lrig1 is not only a marker of intestinal stem cells, but also acts as a tumor suppressor and inhibits the growth and proliferative signals of the ErbB family-acting as a sort of "brake" on cell proliferation that can lead to cancer.
To determine whether oral exposure to BPA can interfere with the erbB and associated signaling pathways, we performed targeted immunoblot analysis using mammary glands from 112-day-old MMTV-erbB2 mice exposed to representative doses of BPA (Figure 4).

The EGF or ErbB receptor family is composed of four receptors; EGFR/ErbB1/HER1, ErbB2/HER2, ErbB3/HER3 and ErbB4/HER4.

Compounds identified in this program permanently inactivate the ErbB kinases to affect downstream signal transduction events and cell cycle pathways such as cell division, ultimately resulting in decreased cell proliferation.
