Protein Name & Synonyms:
This product specifically recognizes rat CD106, otherwise known as VCAM-1 (vascular adhesion molecule 1), a 110kDa inducible type I transmembrane glycoprotein and member of the immunoglobulin supergene family, which is predominantly expressed on vascular endothelium, and also on bone marrow stromal cells, follicular dendritic cells and some macrophages.
CD106 interacts with the lymphocyte homing receptor VLA-4 (alpha4 beta1 integrin) and LPAM-1 (alpha4 beta7 integrin) and mediates leucocyte-endothelial cell adhesion and signal transduction. Expression of CD106 is upregulated following cytokine activation, and endothelial CD106 plays a role in the extravasation of leucocytes from blood vessels during inflammation.
Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
This product should be stored undiluted. This product is photosensitive and should be protected from light. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
If stored in this manner, this product is stable for 18 months after receipt.
