The presence of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) somatic mutations in non-small cell lung cancer patients is associated with response to treatment with EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKIs), such as gefitinib and erlotinib. More than one hundred mutations in the kinase domain of EGFR have been identified. In particular there are many variations of deletion mutations in exon 19. In this study, we examined the differences in sensitivity to gefitinib, erlotinib and afatinib of several exon 19 mutants and other common EGFR mutations, using YFP-tagged fragments of the EGFR intracellular domain. We also used serum of patients undergoing treatment with EGFR-TKIs in this system. In addition, we examined the relative kinase activity of these mutants by measurement of the relative fluorescent intensity after immunofluorescence staining. We found that both sensitivity to EGFR-TKIs and relative kinase activity differed among several EGFR mutations found in the same region of the kinase domain. This study underscores the importance of reporting the clinical outcome of treatment in relation to different EGFR mutations.
