HER2 a proto-oncogenic receptor tyrosine kinase of the EGFR family. Essential component of a neuregulin-receptor complex, although neuregulins do not interact with it alone. Not activated by EGF, TGF- alpha and amphiregulin. Amplified in breast cancer. Overexpression induces constitutive activity, and the gene is amplified or overexpressed in up to 30% of breast cancers, correlating with poor survival. The antibody Herceptin is approved for treatment of metastatic breast cancer with HER2 amplification/overexpression. Somatic mutations seen in 4% of lung cancers and also in breast, gastric, ovarian cancer and glioblastoma. One SNP shows predisposition to breast and gastric cancer. Inhibitors: Herceptin, lapatinib, PKI-166, EKB-569, CI-1033. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
