    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION extracellular
        plasma membrane
    basic FUNCTION
  • involved in short-range contact-mediated axonal guidance
  • key players in controlling these cell movements in many tissues and at multiple stages of patterning
  • suppresses motility through regulation of Rho GTPases in rhabdomyosarcoma cells
  • mediate processes involving cell-cell contact, including cellular adhesion or repulsion, developmental remodeling and neuronal mapping
  • EPHA3 and PROM1 may play an important role in the development and progression of colorectal tumours
