Functional expression of human-epidermal-growth-factor receptor in a melanoma cell line.


EGFR [EGF (epidermal growth factor) receptor] overexpression correlates with poor prognosis and bad outcomes in different tumours. However, evidence for EGFR contribution in melanoma immunobiology is limited. We have expressed the full-length human EGFR gene in a murine melanoma cell line. EGFR protein expression in stably trnasfected B16 cells in culture… (More)
