EPH-B3 assay

EPH receptor B3

Synonyms: Hek2, Tyro6, ETK2

Family: TK

EPHB3 is a receptor tyrosine kinase that is expressed during embryonic development and in discrete areas of the adult brain, including the cerebellum and hippocampus1. Binding and activation of Eph-receptor family members requires cell-cell interactions2. EPHB3 is up regulated in prostate cancer and melanoma3.

EPHB3 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.
