Target

  • Function
    Receptor for members of the ephrin-A family. Binds to ephrin-A1, -A3, -A4 and -A5. Plays an important role in angiogenesis and tumor neovascularization. The recruitement of VAV2, VAV3 and PI3-kinase p85 subunit by phosphorylated EPHA2 is critical for EFNA1-induced RAC1 GTPase activation and vascular endothelial cell migration and assembly (By similarity). Induces apoptosis in a p53/TP53-independent, caspase-8-dependent manner.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in brain and glioma tissue and glioma cell lines (at protein level). Expressed most highly in tissues that contain a high proportion of epithelial cells, e.g., skin, intestine, lung, and ovary.
  • Involvement in disease
    Genetic variations in EPHA2 are the cause of susceptibility to cataract cortical age-related type 2 (ARCC2) [MIM:613020]. A developmental punctate opacity common in the cortex and present in most lenses. The cataract is white or cerulean, increases in number with age, but rarely affects vision.
    Defects in EPHA2 are the cause of cataract posterior polar type 1 (CTPP1) [MIM:116600]. A subcapsular opacity, usually disk-shaped, located at the back of the lens. It can have a marked effect on visual acuity.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Tyr protein kinase family. Ephrin receptor subfamily.
    Contains 2 fibronectin type-III domains.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
    Contains 1 SAM (sterile alpha motif) domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Activated by EFNA1 via tyrosine phosphorylation. Phosphorylated residues Tyr-588 and Tyr-594 are required for binding VAV2 and VAV3 while phosphorylated residues Tyr-735 and Tyr-930 are required for binding PI3-kinase p85 subunit. These phosphorylated residues are critical for recruitment of VAV2 and VAV3 and PI3-kinase p85 subunit which transduce downstream signaling to activate RAC1 GTPase and endothelial cell migration. They also play a critical role in transducing EPHA2 signaling in vascular endothelial cells during tumor angiogenesis.

Images

  • Flow cytometric analysis of NIH/3T3 (mouse embryonic fibroblast cell line) cell line labeling Eph receptor A2 with ab185156 at 1/50 dilution (red) compared with a Rabbit IgG, monoclonal [EPR25A] - Isotype Control (ab172730) (black) and an unlabeled control (cells without incubation with primary antibody and secondary antibody) (blue). Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (Alexa Fluor® 488) (ab150077) at 1/2000 dilution was used as the secondary antibody.

    Total viable cells were gated for the FC image.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab185156).

  • Eph receptor A2 was immunoprecipitated from 0.35 mg of NIH/3T3 (mouse embryonic fibroblast cell line) lysate with ab185156 at 1/30 dilution. Western blot was performed from the immunoprecipitate using ab185156 at 1/500 dilution. VeriBlot for IP Detection Reagent (HRP) (ab131366), was used for detection at 1/1000 dilution.

    Lane 1: NIH/3T3 whole cell lysate 10 µg (Input). 

    Lane 2: ab185156 IP in NIH/3T3 whole cell lysate. 

    Lane 3: Rabbit monoclonal IgG (ab172730) instead of ab185156 in NIH/3T3 whole cell lysate.

    Exposure time: 10 seconds.

    Blocking/Dilution buffer: 5% NFDM/TBST.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab185156).

  • Immunofluorescent analysis of 100% methanol-fixed NIH/3T3 (mouse embryonic fibroblast cell line) cells labeling Eph receptor A2 with ab185156  at 1/50 dilution, followed by Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (Alexa Fluor® 488) (ab150077) secondary antibody at 1/1000 dilution (green). Confocal image showing membranous staining on NIH/3T3 cells.

    The nuclear counter stain is DAPI (blue). Tubulin is detected with Anti-alpha Tubulin antibody [DM1A] - Microtubule Marker (Alexa Fluor® 594) (ab195889) (red) at 1/200 dilution.

    Secondary antibody only control: Used PBS instead of primary antibody, secondary antibody is Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (Alexa Fluor® 488) (ab150077) secondary antibody at 1/1000 dilution.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab185156).
