The EPHA1 gene is transcribed to yield mRNA and the mRNA is translated to yield protein. EPHA1 is expressed most highly in epidermis of skin and is downregulated in nonmelanomal skin cancers (Hafner et al. 2006). EPHA1 is expressed at lower levels in liver, colon, small intestine, bladder, kidney, prostate, and thymus (Hafner et al. 2006). POU5F1 (OCT4), SOX2, and NANOG bind the promoter of the EPHA1 gene and OCT4 (Babaie et al. 2007, Greber et al. 2007, Kunarso et al. 2010), SOX2 (Greber et al. 2007) and NANOG (Greber et al. 2007) enhance transcription. The binding site of POU5F1 is adjacent to the binding site of SOX2 on the promoter of EPHA1 (Boyer et al. 2005). Expression and kinase activity of EPHA1 correlate with maintenance of pluripotency (Son et al. 2013).
