Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits chemorepellent activity; ephrin receptor binding activity; and neurotrophin TRKB receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to follicle-stimulating hormone stimulus; cellular response to forskolin; and generation of neurons. Localizes to several cellular components, including the GABA-ergic synapse; adherens junction; and basement membrane. Used to study anencephaly. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; embryo ectoderm; limb; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human EFNA5 (ephrin A5).
