Background: Ephrin-B2

Ephrin-B2, also known as Htk-L, ELF-2, LERK-5, and NLERK-1 (1), is a member of the ephrin ligand family which binds members of the Eph receptor family. All ligands share a conserved extracellular sequence, which most likely corresponds to the receptor binding domain. This conserved sequence consists of approximately 125 amino acids and includes four invariant cysteines. The B-class ligands are transmembrane proteins which can become tyrosine phosphorylated upon receptor ligation. The cytoplasmic domains are approximately 80 amino acids long and are highly conserved, especially the last 33 amino acids. Several signaling molecules have been shown to interact with the cytoplasmic region, although specific signaling roles have yet to be elucidated. Ephrin-B2 has been shown to bind EphA4, EphB1, EphB2, EphB3, and EphB4 (2, 3). The extracellular domains of murine and human Ephrin-B2 share 98% amino acid identity. Only membrane-bound or Fc-clustered ligands are capable of activating the receptor in vitro. While soluble monomeric ligands bind the receptor, they do not induce receptor autophosphorylation and activation (2). In vivo, the ligands and receptors display reciprocal expression (3). It has been found that nearly all the receptors and ligands are expressed in developing and adult neural tissue (3). The Ephrin/Eph families also appear to play a role in angiogenesis (3).

Human/Mouse/Rat Ephrin-B2 Antibody
By Anonymous on 12/16/2020
Application: Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence Sample Tested: E12.5 mouse embryo fixed in 4% PFA Species: Mouse

Dilution used - 1:200. The staining was done on an E12.5 transverse mouse section fixed overnight with 4% PFA.
Stained using standard IF technique.
Attached picture shows an artery and a vein and it is clearly seen that the artery seen is stained positive whereas the adjacent vein is negative for EphrinB2 (as it should be).
