In addition, both ephrin-B2 and its receptor EphB4
are expressed in mature monocytes and lymphocytes and regulate their motility, adhesion, transmigration, and the secretion of inflammatory mediators .

in human placenta," The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, vol.
Briefly in maintaining homeostasis of bone remodeling, osteoclasts express ephrinB2, a transmembrane ligand, while osteoblasts express the EphB4
Several organ- or tumor-specific markers, such as CEA (carcinoembryonic antigen), EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor), PSA (prostate-specific antigen), HER-2 (human epidermal growth factor receptor 2), MUC-1 (mucin 1), EphB4
(ephrin type-B receptor 4), IGF-1R(insulin-like growth factor 1 receptor), cadherin 11, and CSV (cell-surface vimentin) have also been reported for antibody-based isolation of CTCs (see online Supplemental Table 1).

En este sentido, se ha observado que genes como efirina B2 y EphB4
se expresan en endotelio arterial y venoso respectivamente, antes que la circulacion este totalmente madura (Wang et al., 1998).

The cellular analysis of the two-color immunofluorescence in ventral horn of the rat spinal cord showed a colocalization of the EphA1, EphA2, EphA7, EphA8, EphB1, EphB4
, and EphB6 receptors, as well as the ephrin A5 with the NF-200 positive motor neurons of this region.
is a receptor tyrosine kinase that is expressed on epithelial cells during fetal life.
and EphA2 are the most studied members of this family in cancer.
