Regulatory Status Legend
The 2H9 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the Ephrin Type-B Receptor 2 (EphB2). EphB2 is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to the Eph receptor family of tyrosine kinase receptors. EphB2 serves as a cell surface receptor tyrosine kinase for membrane-anchored ligands referred to as type B ephrins (ephrin-B). The EphB2 receptor can bind to ephrin-B1, ephrin-B2, and ephrin-B3. Transmembrane ephrin-B family members are key regulators of embryogenesis including development of the nervous and vascular systems. The EphB2 receptor functions as a chemodirectant in regulating cellular migration. EphB2/ephrin-B interactions orchestrate cell positioning by regulating cellular adhesion and repulsion during development, thereby influencing cell fate, morphogenesis and organogenesis. Signaling can occur in a forward pathway when the EphB2 receptor tyrosine kinase is activated by bound ligand and in a reverse pathway when transmembrane ephrin-B ligands are activated by EphB2 receptor-mediated crosslinking. In the adult body, Eph receptor signaling plays major roles in regulating the architecture and physiology of different tissues under normal as well as disease conditions such as cancer. Ephrin-B1 and ephrin-B2 levels are upregulated in the vasculature during inflammation. Ephrin-B2 molecules that are localized to the luminal endothelial surface can signal through the EphB2 which is expressed by monocytes. This interaction promotes monocyte differentiation into proinflammatory macrophages. In the intestinal epithelium, EphB2/ephrin-B interactions regulate both cell positioning and tumor progression. The differential expression patterns of EphB2 allows for the detection and isolation of various intestinal epithelial cell types. These include intestinal stem cells (ISCs) which express high levels of EphB2. The 2H9 antibody reportedly blocks the interaction of EphB2 with ephrin ligands and crossreacts with mouse EphB2.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BUV395 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet family of dyes. This dye has been exclusively developed by BD Biosciences to have minimal spillover into other detectors, making it an optimal choice for multicolor flow cytometry. With an Ex Max at 348 nm and an Em Max at 395 nm, BD Horizon BUV395 can be excited with a 355 nm laser and detected with a 379/28 filter.
BUV395 is a UV-excitable dye that has been developed exclusively by BD Biosciences. With an excitation max of 348 nm and emission max of 395 nm, BUV395 can be excited by the 355-nm laser and detected in a 379/28 filter. This dye is optimal for multicolor flow cytometry because it has little to no spillover into other detectors.

Preparation and Storage
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated with BD Horizon BUV395 under optimal conditions that minimize unconjugated dye and antibody.
- This antibody was developed for use in flow cytometry.
- The production process underwent stringent testing and validation to assure that it generates a high-quality conjugate with consistent performance and specific binding activity. However, verification testing has not been performed on all conjugate lots.
- Researchers should determine the optimal concentration of this reagent for their individual applications.
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
- Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes (including BD OptiBuild Brilliant reagents) are used in the same experiment. Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation. The BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions. More information can be found in the Technical Data Sheet of the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794).
