Gene: EPHA6 (EPH receptor A6) Homo sapiens
Symbol: EPHA6
Name: EPH receptor A6
Description: Predicted to have transmembrane-ephrin receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in axon guidance; positive regulation of kinase activity; and transmembrane receptor protein tyrosine kinase signaling pathway. Localizes to nucleoplasm; PARTICIPATES IN ephrin - ephrin receptor bidirectional signaling axis; INTERACTS WITH aflatoxin B1; carbamazepine; copper(II) sulfate.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: DKFZp434C1418; EHK-2; EHK2; EK12; EPA6; EPH homology kinase 2; EPH-like kinase 12; ephrin receptor EphA6; ephrin type-A receptor 6; FLJ35246; HEK12; PRO57066
