AREG Xpressway Gene Expression Profile

The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the epidermal growth factor family. It is an autocrine growth factor as well as a mitogen for astrocytes, Schwann cells and fibroblasts. It is related to epidermal growth factor (EGF) and transforming growth factor alpha (TGF-alpha). The protein interacts with the EGF/TGF-alpha receptor to promote the growth of normal epithelial cells, and it inhibits the growth of certain aggressive carcinoma cell lines. It also functions in mammary gland, oocyte and bone tissue development. This gene is associated with a psoriasis-like skin phenotype, and is also associated with other pathological disorders, including various types of cancers and inflammatory conditions.

With Asterand’s TargetEvaluator® database consisting of more than 2000 XpressWay® Gene Expression Profiles, you are sure to find a target of interest. XpressWay® Profiles consist of high quality target expression in 72 normal human tissues from 3 different donors. The tissues are chosen to be representative of the major organ systems of the human body, and comprise many sub-dissected regions. Total RNA is isolated from tissues using Asterand’s standard methodologies, and gene expression is measured using highly sensitive and quantitative real time-PCR. Target gene transcripts are multiplexed with GAPDH as a control for the PCR process. Click here for full details of Asterand's qRT-PCR methodologies used to generate XpressWay Profiles.

Profiles are purchased with a license and you will be provided in a full profile report. While any number of profiles may be purchased, if you are purchasing more than 20 profiles, please contact advantage@asterand.com so that your Regional Business Development Director may contact you for special tiered pricing.
