PTMs - P29322 As Enzyme
Receptor tyrosine kinase which binds promiscuously GPI-anchored ephrin-A family ligands residing on adjacent cells, leading to contact-dependent bidirectional signaling into neighboring cells. The signaling pathway downstream of the receptor is referred to as forward signaling while the signaling pathway downstream of the ephrin ligand is referred to as reverse signaling. The GPI-anchored ephrin-A EFNA2, EFNA3, and EFNA5 are able to activate EPHA8 through phosphorylation. With EFNA5 may regulate integrin-mediated cell adhesion and migration on fibronectin substrate but also neurite outgrowth. During development of the nervous system plays also a role in axon guidance. Downstream effectors of the EPHA8 signaling pathway include FYN which promotes cell adhesion upon activation by EPHA8 and the MAP kinases in the stimulation of neurite outgrowth (By similarity).
Phosphorylated. Phosphorylation is stimulated upon binding of its ligands including EFNA2, EFNA3 and EFNA5. Autophosphorylation on Tyr-616 is critical for association with FYN. Autophosphorylation on Tyr-839 modulates tyrosine kinase activity (By similarity).
Ubiquitinated. Ubiquitination by CBL regulates the receptor stability and activity through proteasomal degradation. ANKS1A prevents ubiquitination and degradation (By similarity).
Cell membrane>Single-pass type I membrane protein. Cell projection. Early endosome membrane.
Note: Undergoes clathrin-mediated endocytosis upon EFNA5-binding and is targeted to early endosomes.
Heterotetramer upon binding of the ligand. The heterotetramer is composed of an ephrin dimer and a receptor dimer. Oligomerization is probably required to induce biological responses. May also form heterodimers with other ephrin receptors (By similarity). Interacts with FYN; possible downstream effector of EPHA8 in regulation of cell adhesion. Interacts with PIK3CG; regulates integrin-mediated cell adhesion to substrate. Interacts with TIAM1; regulates clathrin-mediated endocytosis of EPHA8. Interacts with ANKS1A and ANKS1B; EPHA8 kinase activity-independent but stimulated by EPHA8 ubiquitination.
Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Tyr protein kinase family. Ephrin receptor subfamily.
