  • Relevance
    Ephrin receptors bind members of the ephrin ligand family. They are divided into 2 groups based on the similarity of their extracellular domain sequences and their affinities for binding ephrin-A and ephrin-B ligands. They make up the largest subgroup of the receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) family. Eph receptor B1 (EphB1) and Eph receptor B2 (EphB2) are receptors for ephrin-B family members. Developing and adult neural tissue express nearly all of the Ephrin receptors and ephrin ligands. Ephrins and ephrin receptors also play a significant role in angiogenesis. EphB2 acts as a tumor suppressor.

  • ab61791 staining Eph receptor B1 + Eph receptor B2 (phospho Y594) in HeLa cells (overexpressing  EphB2 and stimulated for 20 minutes with preclustered efnb1-Fc chimeric protein) by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 and blocked with 1% BSA for 30 minutes at 25°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100 in PBS + 1% BSA + 0.1% Triton X-100) for 2 hour at 25°C. An Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated donkey anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/300) was used as the secondary antibody. Red - anti-EphB2 (goat), Grey - DAPI, Green - ab61791.

ab61791 detects Eph B1 receptor phosphorylation at Y594 and the corresponding phosphorylation status of Eph B2 receptor at Y596.

In terms of the significance of Eph B2 receptor phosphorylation at Y596, a literature search through some of the references listed in the phosphosite webpage for Y596 below may be of help:

I also performed a quick literature search and found the article below, which mentions:
"Alternatively, phosphorylation of Y596/604might aid or induce receptor oligomerization, resulting intrans phosphorylation of Y779. Experiments to order the phosphorylation events and to determine whether juxtamembrane phosphorylation is a prerequisite for YACT-based activation are under way."

Since this article is from 2000, it may be worth contacting the authors to see if they have further information regarding how the activation status of Eph B2 is related to phosphorylation of Y596.
