EPH receptor A4

SEK, EphA4
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.

Di Benedetto et al., München, Germany. In Neuropharmacology, Feb 2016
These effects correlated with a reduced neuronal activation in the stratum pyramidale, thereby prompting us to analyse a regulator of LTP located at the astrocyte-neuron interface in the stratum radiatum, namely the ephrinA3/EphA4 signalling pathway.

Song et al., Singapore, Singapore. In Plos One, Dec 2015
The identification that EphA2 and EphA5 bind to the MSP domain with higher affinity than EphA4 provides a biophysical basis for further exploring whether other than inducing ALS-like syndrome, the HCV infection might also trigger pathogenesis associated with signalling pathways mediated by EphA2 and EphA5.
