  • Description: The human mammary luminal epithelial cell line MTSV1-7 was transfected with an ERBB2 expression vector, enabling over-expression of the ERBB2 proto-oncogene. It allows in vitro study of ERBB2 proto-oncogene over-expression in human mammary epithelia adn of the effects of ERBB2 over-expression on epithelial morphology & adhesion. The over-expression of the ERBB2 receptor inhibits morphogenesis in vitro, and induces reduced expression of surface adhesion molecules as E-Cadherin and a2 integrin, suggesting a role for ERBB2 over-expression in tumour progression and metastasis.
