Technical Data
Eck (EphA2, Mpk-5, Native Epithelial Cell Kinase, Eph receptor tyrosine kinase A2)
Eck belongs to the Eph tyrosine receptor familiy, the largest receptor tyrosine kinase family of transmembrane proteins. It encodes a 130kD transmembrane protein which is primarily found in adult human epithelial cells (1). Eph receptors and their ephrin ligands are important mediators of cell-cell communication and play roles in embryonic patterning, neuronal targeting, and vascular development during normal embryogenesis (2,3). The Eph family of receptor tyrosine kinases is frequently overexpressed in a wide variety of cancers and tumor cell lines. In particular, Eck is overexpressed in prostate, lung and colon cancers and 40% of breast cancers and it represents an attractive potential target for drug design (3,4).
