Characterization of epidermal growth factor receptor in testis, epididymis and vas deferens of non-human primates.

The presence of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) in testis, epididymis and vas deferens of monkeys was demonstrated using a polyclonal antibody (RK2) raised against a peptide-specific sequence of the intracellular domain of the human EGFR. Immunoblotting of membrane preparations revealed a specific band at approximately 170 kDa corresponding to… CONTINUE READING
