The Eph receptors are the largest known family of receptor tyrosine kinases. The Eph receptors and their membrane-attached ligands, ephrins, show diverse expression patterns during development. Recent studies have demonstrated that Eph receptors and ephrins play important roles in many developmental processes, including neuronal network formation, the patterning of the neural tube and the paraxial mesoderm, the guidance of cell migration, and vascular formation. In the nervous system, Eph… CONTINUE READING
