  • Description: Non-tumorigenic immortalized breast epithelial cell stably overexpressing mutant cancer-related genes. EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor). EGFR is a trans-membrane type receptor tyrosine kinase and signaling caused by EGFR is thought to play a crucial role in maintaining homeostasis of normal tissues by being involved in the regulation of cells such as proliferation and differentiation. Mutation of EGFR gene is found in lung cancer and it is known that its constant activation causes cell proliferation and tumorigenesis. Deletion of the Exon19 region, mutation of L858R and T790M are known as somatic cell mutations often found in cancer.
