Cluster Analysis of Endogenous HER2 and HER3 Receptors in SKBR3 Cells
The Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (HER) family of receptor tyrosine kinases consists of four, single pass, transmembrane receptor homologs (HER1-4) that act to regulate many critical processes in normal and tumor cells. HER2 is ...

Ex vivo Culture and Lentiviral Transduction of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) Samples
Authors:  Urszula Lucja McClurg, Stuart R McCracken, Lisa Butler, Karl T Riabowol and Olivier Binda, date: 11/05/2018, view: 3112, Q&A: 0
To assess oncogenic potential, classical transformation assays are based on cell line models. However, cell line based models do not reflect the complexity of human tissues. We thus developed an inducible expression system for gene expression in ex ...
