Ephrin-A3 / EFNA3 Molecule Background
Ephrin-A3 (Ephrin A3) is also known as EFL-2, EHK1 ligand, EHK1-L, EPH-related receptor tyrosine kinase ligand 3, EFL2, EPLG3 and LERK3,which comprises the largest subfamily of receptor protein-tyrosine kinases (RTKs), and has been involved in a variety of biological processes, especially in the nervous system and in erythropoiesis, such as axon guidance and topographic map formation, synaptic plasticity, angiogenesis, and meanwhile have possible contributions to tumor growth and metastasis. Ephrin A3 is cell surface GPI-bound ligand for Eph receptors and belongs to the family of receptor tyrosine kinases. Ephrin can bind promiscuously Eph receptors residing on adjacent cells, leading to contact-dependent bidirectional signaling into neighboring cells.
