Detects mouse EphB4 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs, approximately 5% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse (rm) EphB6 and rmEphA3 is observed and less than 1% cross-reactivity with rmEphA2, rmEphA4, rmEphA6, rmEphA7, rmEphA8, rmEphB2, and rmEphB3 is observed.
EphB4 in Mouse Embryo. EphB4 was detected in immersion fixed frozen sections of mouse embryo (15 d.p.c.) using Goat Anti-Mouse EphB4 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF446) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

EphB4, also known as Htk, Myk1, Tyro11, and Mdk2 (1), is a member of the Eph receptor family which binds members of the ephrin ligand family. There are two classes of receptors, designated A and B. Both the A and B class receptors have an extracellular region consisting of a globular domain, a cysteine-rich domain, and two fibronectin type III domains. This is followed by the transmembrane region and cytoplasmic region. The cytoplasmic region contains a juxtamembrane motif with two tyrosine residues, which are the major autophosphorylation sites, a kinase domain, and a conserved sterile alpha motif (SAM) in the carboxy tail which contains one conserved tyrosine residue. Activation of kinase activity occurs after ligand recognition and binding. EphB4 has been shown to bind ephrin‑B2 and ephrin‑B1 (2, 3). The extracellular domains of human and mouse EphB4 share 88% 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 receptors and ligands are expressed in developing and adult neural tissue (3). The Eph/ephrin families also appear to play a role in angiogenesis (3).
