Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 45 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 36 kDa).
IHC Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 25309991


  • Function
    May play a pivotal role in forebrain function. Binds to, and induce the collapse of, commissural axons/growth cones in vitro. May play a role in constraining the orientation of longitudinally projecting axons.
  • Tissue specificity
    Highly expressed in brain; expressed in embryonic floor plate, roof plate and hindbrain segments.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the ephrin family.
  • Cellular localization

    Predicted band size: 36 kDa
    Observed band size: 45 kDa
    why is the actual band size different from the predicted?

    Exposure time: 90 seconds

    Ephrin B3 contains a potential glycosylation site (SwissProt) which may explain its migration at a higher molecular weight than predicted.
  • ICC/IF image of ab101699 stained SKNSH cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab101699, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899, DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
