Accession # P52801
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
Ephrin‑A2 in Rat Hippocampal Neurons. Ephrin‑A2 was detected in immersion fixed rat hippocampal neurons using 10 µg/mL Goat Anti-Mouse Ephrin‑A2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF603) for 3 hours at room temperature. Neurons were stained (green) and glial cells were labeled by using anti-GFAP antibodies (red). View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

Ephrin-A2, also known as ELF-1, Cek7-L and LERK-6 (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 (aa) and includes four invariant cysteines. The A-class ligands have a GPI anchor following the conserved sequence. Ephrin-A2 has been shown to bind EphA2, EphA3, EphA4, EphA5, EphA6, EphA7, and EphA8 (2, 3). The extracellular domains of human and mouse Ephrin-A2 share 93% aa 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).
