2C4 (Pertuzumab, Omnitarg) is a monoclonal antibody targeting p185(her2/neu), which is overexpressed in 30% of invasive breast cancer. 2C4 is currently in phase II clinical trials for several types of cancers. This antibody has been reported to disrupt the association between p185(her2/neu) and ErbB3. In our studies of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-p185(her2/neu) heterodimerization, we noted that 2C4 formed associations with the EGFR-p185(her2/neu) receptor complex. Our data argue against 2C4 as a universal heterodimerization blocker for p185(her2/neu), but indicate that cocktails of monoclonal antibodies binding distinct interaction surfaces of p185(her2/neu) will emerge as the most potent targeted therapy.
