Entrez Gene summary for EPHA8 Gene:
This gene encodes a member of 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. The protein encoded by this gene functions as a receptor for ephrin A2, A3 and A5 and plays a role in
short-range contact-mediated axonal guidance during development of the mammalian nervous system. (provided by
RefSeq, Jul 2008)

GeneCards Summary for EPHA8 Gene: 
EPHA8 (EPH receptor A8) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with EPHA8 include duodenum cancer, and adenocarcinoma, and among its related super-pathways are Ras Pathway and MAPK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include GPI-linked ephrin receptor activity and ATP binding. An important paralog of this gene is EPHB1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: EPHA8_HUMAN, P29322
Function: Receptor tyrosine kinase which binds promiscuously GPI-anchored ephrin-A family ligands residing on
adjacent cells, leading to contact-dependent bidirectional signaling into neighboring cells. The signaling
pathway downstream of the receptor is referred to as forward signaling while the signaling pathway downstream of
the ephrin ligand is referred to as reverse signaling. The GPI-anchored ephrin-A EFNA2, EFNA3, and EFNA5 are able
to activate EPHA8 through phosphorylation. With EFNA5 may regulate integrin-mediated cell adhesion and migration
on fibronectin substrate but also neurite outgrowth. During development of the nervous system plays also a role
in axon guidance. Downstream effectors of the EPHA8 signaling pathway include FYN which promotes cell adhesion
upon activation by EPHA8 and the MAP kinases in the stimulation of neurite outgrowth (By similarity)
