ErbB3 is a member of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor subfamily of receptor tyrosine kinases and is believed to be a receptor for an unknown ligand. We have tested the possibility that heregulin, a growth factor possessing an EGF-like domain, is a ligand for ErbB3. We have found that the iodinated recombinant EGF-like domain of heregulin-beta 1 (125I-rHRG beta 1(177-244) bound specifically to insect cell-expressed bovine ErbB3 with a dissociation constant of 0.85 nM. Moreover, 125I… CONTINUE READING
