Ephrin B3 (EFNB3, Ephrin B3 (EFL6, EPH-related receptor transmembrane ligand ELK-L3, EPH-related receptor tyrosine kinase ligand 8, Ephrin-B3, EPLG8, LERK8)
Description:
Ephrins are the ligands which bind to the Eph receptor subfamily, the largest group of the receptor tyrosine kinase family. Both ephrins and Eph receptors are broadly expressed throughout the ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm of vertebrate embryos. The interaction of ephrins with the appropriate Eph receptors has been implicated in a wide spectrum of functions in vertebrate morphogenesis, including the accurate migration of embryonic cells, formation of boundaries between structures (i.e. rhombomeres and somites) and the control of cytoskeletal changes which dictate cellular shape and adhesion during development. Two classes of ephrins exist: Class A ephrins are tethered to the membrane by a GPI linkage and bind primarily to EphA receptors; Class B ephrins contain a membrane-spanning region and bind predominantly to EphB receptors. Ephrin-B3 is a Class B protein. It has been shown to bind the EphB1, EphB2, EphB3 and EphA4 receptors.
