Ephrin B2

Ephrin-B2, EFNB2
This gene encodes a member of the ephrin (EPH) family. The ephrins and EPH-related receptors comprise the largest subfamily of receptor protein-tyrosine kinases and have been implicated in mediating developmental events, especially in the nervous system and in erythropoiesis. Based on their structures and sequence relationships, ephrins are divided into the ephrin-A (EFNA) class, which are anchored to the membrane by a glycosylphosphatidylinositol linkage, and the ephrin-B (EFNB) class, which are transmembrane proteins. This gene encodes an EFNB class ephrin which binds to the EPHB4 and EPHA3 receptors. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Frenette et al., United States. In Science, Feb 2016
After closure of the umbilical inlet at birth, portal vessels undergo a transition from Neuropilin-1(+)Ephrin-B2(+) artery to EphB4(+) vein phenotype, associated with a loss of periportal Nestin(+)NG2(+) cells and emigration of HSCs away from portal vessels.
Interrogating cellular fate decisions with high-throughput arrays of multiplexed cellular communities.
Schaffer et al., Berkeley, United States. In Nat Commun, Dec 2015

Direct cell-cell contact with the vascular niche maintains quiescent neural stem cells.
Parrinello et al., Tübingen, Germany. In Nat Cell Biol, 2014
Mechanistically, endothelial ephrinB2 and Jagged1 mediate these effects by suppressing cell-cycle entry downstream of mitogens and inducing stemness genes to jointly inhibit differentiation.

Garayoa et al., Salamanca, Spain. In World J Stem Cells, 2014
Importantly, pMSCs also readily contribute to MBD by promoting OC formation and activity at various levels (i.e., increasing RANKL to OPG expression, augmenting secretion of activin A, uncoupling ephrinB2-EphB4 signaling, and through augmented production of Wnt5a), thus further contributing to OB/OC uncoupling in osteolytic lesions.
Regulation of signaling interactions and receptor endocytosis in growing blood vessels.
Adams et al., Münster, Germany. In Cell Adh Migr, 2013
During growth and tissue regeneration but also in many pathological settings, these vascular networks expand, which is critically controlled by the receptor EphB4 and the ligand ephrin-B2.
Multivalent ligands control stem cell behaviour in vitro and in vivo.
