FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene 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. Receptors in the EPH subfamily typically have a single kinase domain and an extracellular region containing a Cys-rich domain and 2 fibronectin type III repeats. The ephrin receptors are divided into 2 groups based on the similarity of their extracellular domain sequences and their affinities for binding ephrin-A and ephrin-B ligands. This gene encodes a protein that binds ephrin-A ligands. Mutations in this gene are the cause of certain genetically-related cataract disorders.[provided by RefSeq, May 2010]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a null allele exhibit abnormal angiogenesis. Mice homozygous for a gene trap allele exhibit increased incidence of chemically-induced tumors, increased metastatic potential, and age-related cataracts. [provided by MGI curators]
