HER2, a known proto-oncogene, is located at the long arm of human chromosome 17 (17q12), encoding a type 1 tyrosine kinase growth factor receptor and the role of HER2 in the development of numerous types of human cancer. HER2 is a transmembrane receptor comprising an extracellular domain (ECD), a single transmembrane domain, and an intracellular domain (ICD) with tyrosine-kinase activity.The high-expression and amplification of C-erbB-2 and its protein products (P185) are found in a wide variety of tumors. HER2 is overexpressed in 10% to 35% of gastric and gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) adenocarcinomas.

|Subcellular location:||Cytoplasm, Nucleus|
|Post transnational modification:||Autophosphorylated. Autophosphorylation occurs in trans, i.e. one subunit of the dimeric receptor phosphorylates tyrosine residues on the other subunit (Probable). Ligand-binding increases phosphorylation on tyrosine residues (PubMed:27134172). Signaling via SEMA4C promotes phosphorylation at Tyr-1248 (PubMed:17554007). Dephosphorylated by PTPN12 (PubMed:27134172).|
|Tissue Specificity:||Expressed in a variety of tumor tissues including primary breast tumors and tumors from small bowel, esophagus, kidney and mouth.|
