This antibody is predicted to react with hamster, mouse, and rat based on sequence homology.
Heat-mediated antigen retrieval is recommended prior to staining, using a 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 min. Following antigen retrieval, incubate samples with primary antibody for 10 min at room temperature. A suggested positive control is small intestine, bone marrow or colon carcinoma.
Integrins are important extracellular matrix (ECM) receptor proteins located on cell surfaces. They are hetrodimers composed of an alpha and a beta transmembrane glycoprotein subunit. Around 22 different integrins (different alpha/ beta subunit combinations) are found in nature. Integrins are generally present in high concentrations at the cell surface, but, unlike most other cell-surface receptors, they bind ligands with very low affinity. Due to their weak individual binding, integrins need to cluster and bind in-groups in order to effectively bind the ECM. Integrins bind many different ligands including laminin. Each integrin is made up of a large N-terminal extracellular domain that binds the ECM ligand and a small C-terminal cytoplasmic domain that mediates interaction with the actin cytoskeleton and signaling function.
