Gene Summary

[ - ] NCBI Entrez Gene

Gene ID 2041 Official Symbol EPHA1
Locus N/A Gene Type protein-coding
Synonyms EPH; EPHT; EPHT1; MGC163163
Full Name EPH receptor A1
Description EPH receptor A1
Chromosome 7q34
Also Known As eph tyrosine kinase 1; ephrin receptor EphA1; ephrin type-A receptor 1; erythropoietin-producing hepatoma amplified sequence; oncogene EPH; soluble EPHA1 variant 1; soluble EPHA1 variant 2; tyrosine-protein kinase receptor EPH
Summary This gene belongs to the ephrin receptor subfamily of the protein-tyrosine kinase family. EPH and EPH-related receptors have been implicated in mediating developmental events, particularly in the nervous system. Receptors in the EPH subfamily typically have a single kinase domain and an extracellular region containing a Cys-rich domain and 2 fibronectin type III repeats. The ephrin receptors are divided into 2 groups based on the similarity of their extracellular domain sequences and their affinities for binding ephrin-A and ephrin-B ligands. This gene is expressed in some human cancer cell lines and has been implicated in carcinogenesis. [provided by RefSeq]
