Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have transmembrane-ephrin receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; blood vessel morphogenesis; and negative regulation of vasculature development. Localizes to cell surface. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; branchial arch; central nervous system; endometrium; and limb. Used to study cataract 6 multiple types. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cataract 6 multiple types. Orthologous to human EPHA2 (EPH receptor A2).
