HER2/Neu gene mutations have been identified in lung cancer. Expression of a HER2 mutant containing a G776(YVMA) insertion in exon 20 was more potent than wild-type HER2 in associating with and activating signal transducers, phosphorylating EGFR, and inducing survival, invasiveness, and tumorigenicity. HER2(YVMA) transphosphorylated kinase-dead EGFR(K721R)(More)
Activating mutants of EGFR have been identified in a subset of non-small-cell lung cancers. To investigate mutant-driven signaling, we focused on Y869, a residue in the same activation loop where the L858R and L861Q mutations are located. We observed ligand-independent phosphorylation of Y869 in 32D cells EGFR(L858R) and EGFR(L861Q). The EGFR tyrosine(More)
Activating mutations in the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), localized in the activation loop within the kinase domain, have been discovered in non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC). Most of these mutants are exquisitely sensitive to EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors, suggesting that they generate receptor dependence in the cancers that express them.(More)
The macrophage MR has been the subject of investigation for over 20 years, and several important physiological functions have been described. However, the molecular mechanisms that regulate MR signaling and trafficking during these processes still remain elusive. The focus of the current paper was to identify potential cellular MR-interacting proteins. An(More)
