Target

  • Function
    Cell surface transmembrane ligand for Eph receptors, a family of receptor tyrosine kinases which are crucial for migration, repulsion and adhesion during neuronal, vascular and epithelial development. Binds promiscuously Eph receptors residing on adjacent cells, leading to contact-dependent bidirectional signaling into neighboring cells. The signaling pathway downstream of the receptor is referred to as forward signaling while the signaling pathway downstream of the ephrin ligand is referred to as reverse signaling. Binds to receptor tyrosine kinase including EPHA4, EPHA3 and EPHB4. Together with EPHB4 plays a central role in heart morphogenesis and angiogenesis through regulation of cell adhesion and cell migration. EPHB4-mediated forward signaling controls cellular repulsion and segregation from EFNB2-expressing cells. May play a role in constraining the orientation of longitudinally projecting axons.
    (Microbial infection) Acts as a receptor for Hendra virus and Nipah virus.
  • Tissue specificity
    Lung and kidney.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the ephrin family.
    Contains 1 ephrin RBD (ephrin receptor-binding) domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Inducible phosphorylation of tyrosine residues in the cytoplasmic domain.
  • Cellular localization

Images

  • ab131536 staining Ephrin B2 in formalin-fixed, paraffin embedded rat C6 cells. Samples were incubated with primary antibody at 1/75 dilution. A Goat anti-rabbit IgG H&L (1/50) was used as the secondary antibody. 

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of rat kidney tissue sections at 1/100 dilution. The tissue was formaldehyde fixed and a heat mediated antigen retrieval step in citrate buffer was performed. The tissue was then blocked and incubated with the antibody for 1.5 hours at 22°C. A HRP-conjugated goat anti-rabbit antibody was used as the secondary.

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of mouse kidney tissue sections at 1/100. The tissue was formaldehyde fixed and a heat mediated antigen retrieval step in citrate buffer was performed. The tissue was then blocked and incubated with the antibody for 1.5 hours at 22°C. An HRP conjugated goat anti-rabbit antibody was used as the secondary.
