EphA8, also known as Hek3 and Eek, is a 120 kDa glycosylated member of the Eph family of transmembrane receptor tyrosine kinases (1, 2). The A and B classes of Eph proteins are distinguished by Ephrin ligand binding preference but have a common structural organization. EphA4 binds and is activated by class A Ephrins but not class B Ephrins (3, 4). Eph-Ephrin interactions are widely involved in the regulation of cell migration, tissue morphogenesis, and cancer progression. The 512 amino acid (aa) extracellular domain (ECD) of human EphA8 contains an N-terminal Ephrin binding region, a cysteine-rich region, and two fibronectin type III domains (FnIII). The 442 aa cytoplasmic domain contains the tyrosine kinase domain and a sterile alpha motif (SAM) (5). Within the ECD, human EphA8 shares 97% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat EphA8. EphA8 is expressed in neurons in the mesencephalon of the developing brain, particularly in the rostral tectum and the superior colliculus (6-8). It is enriched at the tips of neurite processes and plays a role in projection of superior colliculus axons through the posterior commissure (7, 9). Its expression enhances neurite extension by means of a mechanism that does not require catalytic activity of the tyrosine kinase domain (10). Ephrin-mediated activation of the EphA8 kinase induces phosphorylation of tyrosine residues in the cytoplasmic domain, leading to association with signaling and scaffolding proteins and inhibition of cell-cell adhesion (4, 9, 11). Ligand binding can also promote the Integrin-mediated cellular adhesion to Fibronectin (12). This function, like the enhancement of neurite extension, does not require activation of the kinase domain (12).
