||Recombinant human EPHA4 (610-887) was expressed by baculovirus inSf9 insect cellsusing an N-terminal GST tag. MW=58kDa.
||EPHA4 also known as EPH receptor A4, belongs to the ephrin receptor subfamily of protein-tyrosine kinases which have been implicated in mediating developmental events, particularly in the nervous system. The EPHA4 ligand ephrin-A3 is localized to the astrocytic processes that envelop the spine. Activation of EPHA4 by ephrin-A3 induces spinal retraction and reduces spine density and inhibits the interaction distorted spine shape and organization. EPHA4-null mice possess defects in the corticospinal tract and anterior commissure indicating a model in which an ephrin ligand on the axons senses EPHA4 on spinal cord cells surrounding the corticospinal tract.

|Storage And Stability:
||Store product at –70°C. 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.
