Characteristics 1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
3. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
4. 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.
Purification The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
Alternative Name CD49b (ITGA2 Antibody Abstract)
Background Integrins are a family of dimeric proteins that mediate cell-to-cell and extracellular matrix adhesion. They consist of a large alpha chain that is non-covalently associated with a smaller beta chain which is used to define integrin subfamilies. These molecules exhibit a wide range of expression throughout development and adulthood. VLA-2 (very late antigen), a member of the integrin superfamily, was identified on activated T cells, but has since been reported to be on various cell types. VLA-2 is reported to be a heterodimer of integrin alpha2 (CD49b) and integrin beta1 (CD29) subunits. The alpha2 chain contains a large extracellular domain, a transmembrane domain, and a short cytoplasmic tail. VLA-2 functions as a collagen receptor on platelets and fibroblasts, as well as a collagen and laminin receptor on endothelial and epithelial cells. On activated T cells, VLA-2, like LFA-1, exhibits increased number and affinity of ligand binding. Interactions of these molecules with their extracellular matrix ligands is important for directing effector T cells to their target tissues and to provide co-stimulatory signals. Thus, VLA-2 not only plays an important role in cellular adhesion, but may function in intracellular signal transmission. This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis.
