The KMI6 antibody reacts with the 130-kDa integrin ß1 chain (CD29). CD29 is expressed on the cell surface as a heterodimer with one of the distinct integrin achains. With a1 through a6 (CD49a through CD49f), it forms the VLA-1 through VLA-6 complexes, respectively, and with av (CD51), it forms avß1 integrin. It also associates with the integrin a7, a8, and a9 chains in non-lymphoid tissues. As a result, CD29 has a broad tissue distribution, including leukocytes, endothelia, smooth muscle, epithelia, and oocytes. The epitope recognized by the KMI6 mAb can be detected by immunoblot in unreduced extracts from a variety of cells and tissues having a number of different ß1-integrin heterodimer combinations. However, the epitope is not well expressed on the surface of the majority of hematopoietic cells. It is detected on the surface of fetal liver cells, some bone marrow stromal cells, and some cultured hematopoietic cell lines, including P815 and PA6. Surface expression of the CD29 epitope recognized by mAb KMI6 on thymocytes and T lymphocytes appears to be developmentally regulated, and KMI6 antibody enhances the adhesion of KMI6 thymocytes to fibronectin and laminin.

1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
3. 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.
|Application Notes||Please note that the epitope is lost upon sulfhydryl reduction of the antigen. For IHC, we recommend the use of purified anti-mouse CD29 mAb 9EG7 mAb in our special formulation for immunohistochemistry.|
