a type I membrane protein of the ephrin family. A ligand of Eph-related receptor tyrosine kinases EphA3 and EphB4. Ephrins and ephrin receptors mediate numerous developmental processes, particularly in the nervous system. Ephrin-B2 is implicated in mediating developmental events, especially in the nervous system and in erythropoiesis. May play a role in constraining the orientation of longitudinally projecting axons Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: Ligand, receptor tyrosine kinase; Membrane protein, integral
