Site-specific association of c-Src with epidermal growth factor receptor in A431 cells.

Author information

Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Kobe University, Japan.


We have examined the interaction between c-Src and epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor in A431 cells. c-Src was found exclusively in the Triton X-100-solubilized particulate fraction and activated up to 3-fold within 1 min after EGF treatment of the cells. Association between c-Src and EGF receptor was detected by immunoprecipitation of c-Src followed by immunoblotting with anti-EGF receptor antibody. The c-Src-EGF receptor complex was found in both EGF-treated and untreated cells, but an augmented complex formation was observed in EGF-treated cells. We have isolated the complex by DEAE-cellulose column chromatography and found that a site-specific anti-c-Src antibody, which was raised against a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues 413 to 431 of human c-Src, did not recognize the c-Src protein in the complex, while other c-Src-specific antibodies tested did. Incubation of the complex with this synthetic peptide resulted in a partial dissociation of the complex. These results suggest that the specific region of c-Src is involved in the association with EGF receptor.
