The HER-2/neu protooncogene is amplified and overexpressed in 20-40% of invasive breast cancers. HER-2/neu protein overexpression is associated with aggressive disease and is an independent predictor of poor prognosis in several subsets of patients. The protein may also be related to cancer formation, with overexpression being detectable in 50-60% of ductal(More)
Accurate monitoring of the sub-visible particle load in protein biopharmaceuticals is increasingly important to drug development. Manufacturers are expected to characterize and control sub-visible protein particles in their products due to their potential immunogenicity. Light obscuration, the most commonly used analytical tool to count microscopic(More)

The interaction between laminin and the oncoprotein encoded by the c-erbB-2 oncogene was studied in vitro and in vivo in human breast carcinomas. In vitro analysis of breast carcinoma cell lines overexpressing p185HER2 revealed that laminin, but not fibronectin, induced tyrosine phosphorylation and down-modulation of oncoprotein membrane expression. Laminin(More)
