  • Function
    Receptor tyrosine kinase which binds promiscuously GPI-anchored ephrin-A family ligands residing on adjacent cells, leading to contact-dependent bidirectional signaling into neighboring cells. The signaling pathway downstream of the receptor is referred to as forward signaling while the signaling pathway downstream of the ephrin ligand is referred to as reverse signaling. Among GPI-anchored ephrin-A ligands, EFNA5 most probably constitutes the cognate/functional ligand for EPHA5. Functions as an axon guidance molecule during development and may be involved in the development of the retinotectal, entorhino-hippocampal and hippocamposeptal pathways. Together with EFNA5 plays also a role in synaptic plasticity in adult brain through regulation of synaptogenesis. Beside its function in the nervous system, the interaction of EPHA5 with EFNA5 mediates communication between pancreatic islet cells to regulate glucose-stimulated insulin secretion.
  • Tissue specificity
    Almost exclusively expressed in the nervous system in cortical neurons, cerebellar Purkinje cells and pyramidal neurons within the cortex and hippocampus. Display an increasing gradient of expression from the forebrain to hindbrain and spinal cord.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Tyr protein kinase family. Ephrin receptor subfamily.
    Contains 1 Eph LBD (Eph ligand-binding) domain.
    Contains 2 fibronectin type-III domains.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
    Contains 1 SAM (sterile alpha motif) domain.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated. Phosphorylation is stimulated by the ligand EFNA5. Dephosphorylation upon stimulation by glucose, inhibits EPHA5 forward signaling and results in insulin secretion.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane. Cell projection > axon. Cell projection > dendrite.
