|UniProt annotation for EPHA8_HUMAN » Ephrin type-A receptor 8|
|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). CATALYTIC ACTIVITY: ATP + a [protein]-L-tyrosine = ADP + a [protein]-L-tyrosine phosphate. SUBUNIT: Heterotetramer upon binding of the ligand. The heterotetramer is composed of an ephrin dimer and a receptor dimer. Oligomerization is probably required to induce biological responses. May also form heterodimers with other ephrin receptors (By similarity). Interacts with FYN; possible downstream effector of EPHA8 in regulation of cell adhesion. Interacts with PIK3CG; regulates integrin-mediated cell adhesion to substrate. Interacts with TIAM1; regulates clathrin-mediated endocytosis of EPHA8. Interacts with ANKS1A and ANKS1B; EPHA8 kinase activity- independent but stimulated by EPHA8 ubiquitination.|
