EPH-A2 assay

EPH receptor A2

Synonyms: ECK

Family: TK

EPHA2 is a receptor tyrosine kinase that is expressed during embryonic development and in adult epithelia where it regulates cell adhesion1. EPHA2 was shown to participate in a number of cancers by promoting vascularisation and metastasis. Binding and activation of Eph-receptor family members requires cell-cell interactions2.

EPHA2 kinase assay is run on mobility shift microfluidics platform (Caliper), which provides best in industry quality of data. We routinely run services associated with this kinase including: screening, profiling, dose-response studies and kinetic measurements. Please contact us for more information.
