Epidermal growth factor receptor 3 (EGFR3;
Patient sample and mouse
studies identified oncogenic somatic mutations in ERBB3 that could
guide the use of HER2 and ErbB3 inhibitors. Whole-exome sequencing of 507
human primary tumor samples identified protein-altering somatic mutations in ERBB3
in 12% of gastric cancers, 11% of colon cancers and sporadically in other
types of cancer. In both mouse and human cell lines, ERBB3 mutations
plus ErbB2 expression promoted oncogenic transformation,
anchorage-independent growth and IL-3-independent cell survival. In a
mouse model for Erbb3 mutant leukemia, anti-ErbB3 mAbs or the
anti-HER2 mAb Herceptin
decreased disease severity and increased survival compared with a control
mAb. Next steps include conducting studies to further elucidate the
mechanisms by which mutant ERBB3 drives oncogenesis.
