Can anyone help me identify the SOT-89 component in the picture below? It is marked \$\text{43B H42}\$. I have searched to find anything resembling a match, and I found that it could be both a programmable shunt regulator and a NPN power transistor.

Here following a sketch of the circuit surrounding the component of interest.

It's LM431SB. Check the datasheet and you can find its package marking.
