1E8-G6 reacts with TGF-alpha and shows no cross-reaction with EGF and the neuropeptide synenkephalin. 1E8-G6 is completely blocked by the peptide used for immunization. TGF-alpha (aa50) is a growth factor with 33% homology to EGF, binds to EGFR, activates tyrosine phosphorylation of the receptor, and stimulates cell proliferation. It plays a role in tumor initiation by inducing the reversible transformed phenotype. In sections both cytoplasma and cell membranes are stained.

Positive control: Jurkat or Ramos cells, testicular carcinoma, breast cancer.
