Background
Background
Ephrin type-A receptor 2 belongs to the ephrin receptor subfamily of the protein-tyrosine kinase family. EPH and EPH-related receptors have been implicated in mediating developmental events, particularly in the nervous system. It regulates cell adhesion and differentiation and also participates in UV radiation-induced apoptosis. Mutations in this gene are the cause of certain genetically-related cataract disorders.
