EPH-A5 assay

EPH receptor A5

Synonyms: CEK7, EHK1, Hek7, TYRO4

Family: TK

EPHA5 is a receptor tyrosine kinase that is mostly recognized for its critical role in axonal guidance during embryonic development1. Binding and activation of Eph-receptor family members requires cell-cell interactions2. EphA5 is specifically overexpressed in lung cancer and is involved in regulating cellular responses to genotoxic insult.

EPHA5 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.
