Ira O. Daar, Ph.D.
|Our laboratory uses molecular, biochemical and developmental biology techniques to understand signal transduction from the cell surface to the nucleus. We have been focusing on cross-talk between the Eph and FGF families.|
|Upon cell contact, bi-directional signaling occurs between the Eph receptor and the transmembrane ligand, ephrinB. We are interested in the mechanism by which ephrinB signaling affects cell-cell adhesion and cell migration. We are also particularly interested in how tyrosine phosphorylation of this ligand, by either its cognate receptor or the FGF receptor, regulates ephrin activity.|
