Ephrin Receptor (EPHs)

EPH (Erythropoietin-Producing human Hepatocellular) receptors are a group of receptors that are activated in response to binding with Eph receptor-interacting proteins. Ephs form the largest known subfamily of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs). EPH signaling has been implicated in the regulation of a host of processes critical to embryonic development including axon guidance, formation of tissue boundaries, cell migration and segmentation
