||Recombinant mouseEpha1 (569-end) was expressed by baculovirus in Sf9 insect cells using an N-terminal GST tag. MW=71 kDa.
||Epha1 is a member of the Eph family of receptor tyrosine kinases that 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. EPHA1 seems to be a marker of the differentiated normal epidermis and its downregulation in nonmelanoma skin cancer may contribute to carcinogenesis of these very frequent human tumors. EPHA1 represents a new potential prognostic marker and therapeutic target in nonmelanoma skin cancer.

|Storage And Stability:
||Store product at –70oC. For optimal storage, aliquot target into smaller quantities after centrifugation and store at recommended temperature. For most favorable performance, avoid repeated handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.
