Gene: Epha8 (Eph receptor A8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Epha8
Name: Eph receptor A8
RGD ID: 708543
Description: Predicted to have GPI-linked ephrin receptor activity and transmembrane-ephrin receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cellular response to follicle-stimulating hormone stimulus; neuron development; and positive regulation of phosphorylation. Predicted to localize to integral component of plasma membrane; neuron projection; and receptor complex. Orthologous to human EPHA8 (EPH receptor A8); PARTICIPATES IN ephrin - ephrin receptor bidirectional signaling axis; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzofuran; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: eph and elk-related kinase; EPH- and ELK-related kinase; ephrin receptor EphA8; ephrin type-A receptor 8; LOC60589; tyrosine-protein kinase receptor EEK
