EPH-A4 assay

EPH receptor A4

Synonyms: Hek8, TYRO1

Family: TK

EPHA4 is a receptor tyrosine kinase that regulates the formation of the corticospinal tract, a pathway controlling voluntary movements, and of the anterior commissure, connecting the neocortical temporal lobes1. Binding and activation of Eph-receptor family members requires cell-cell interactions2.

EPHA4 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.
