Human CD106 is an endothelial adhesion molecule that binds to alpha 4 beta 1 & alpha 4 beta 7 integrins (VLA-4) and promotes adhesion of lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils and basophils. CD106 is also found on follicular dendritic cells, interdigitating recticulum cells and Kupffer cells (3).
Isotype: Murine IgG1
Immunogen: Human endothelial cells
Specificity: Antibody 1.G11B1 recognizes the an extracellular epitope of the human VCAM-1 molecule (CD106) which is involved with leukocyte adhesion (1, 2,3). It has been reported to be cross reactive with porcine CD106.
Functional Application: Antibody 1.G11B1 binds to an epitope located within the first three n-terminal loops of CD106. This mAb blocks lymphocyte(3) and eosinophil (6) adhesion to CD106. It has been reported to work in FACS(10, 11), IHC (frozen section) and Western blot(8).
