EPHA1

A gene on chromosome 7q32-q36 that encodes a member of the ephrin-A receptor subfamily of receptor tyrosine kinases, which promiscuously bind membrane-bound ephrin-A family ligands residing on adjacent cells, leading to contact-dependent bidirectional signalling into neighbouring cells. It induces cell attachment to the extracellular matrix, inhibiting cell spreading and motility by regulating ILK and downstream RHOA and RAC. EPHA1 also plays a role in angiogenesis and cell proliferation, and may play a role in apoptosis. It is overexpressed in certain carcinomas.

Promote and develop EPHT for use in HIAs, community health needs assessments, and other multidisciplinary assessment approaches
Table 1 illustrates that while a number of key indicators were available on the National EPHT Network portal (most notably, environmental exposure indicators) external sources were required to perform a comprehensive assessment at the local level.
As part of this coordinated network to develop tools and methods, a partnership between the EPHT network and the SAHSU was initiated in 2005.
Further research using Missouri EPHT is recommended as it may lead to other actions or expanded conditions to control environmentally related diseases such as lead poisoning (MDHSS, 2002).
In EPHT to date, the CDC has emphasized pilot projects to electronically link data and development of specifications for improved systems for the electronic communication and use of data, consistent with broader efforts to modernize public health information systems (IOM 2003; Kufafka et al.
We have listed the goals and requirements for an EPHT system in Table 2.
The first of a number of recommendations made by the commission called on the federal government to establish a national environmental public health tracking (EPHT) network to link information on environmentally related diseases, human exposures, and environmental hazards.
The project was a collaboration with the Environmental Public Health Tracking (EPHT) program and CDC (English et al., 2011).
This report helped to launch the national Environmental Public Health Tracking (EPHT) Program funded and organized by the U.S.
NEHA is collaborating with CDC/NCEH on the development and implementation of the Environmental Public Health Tracking (EPHT) Network, which aims to better protect communities from adverse health effects through collection, analysis, integration, and interpretation of data about environmental hazards, exposure to environmental hazards, and human health effects potentially related to exposures.
In 2002 CDC established the national Environmental Public Health Tracking (EPHT) program.
The grant was part of a new initiative called the National Environmental Public Health Tracking (EPHT) Program.
