PA1-28431 detects Integrin alpha 4 from human samples.
PA1-28431 has been successfully used in immunoprecipitation and Western blot applications. The predicted molecular weight by Western blot is 150 kDa.
The PA1-28431 immunogen is antiserum raised against a chemically synthesized phosphopeptide derived from a region of human integrin alpha 4 that contains serine 988.
Integrin alpha 4 (also called CD49d) is a 150 kDa protein that possesses a large extracellular domain involved in ligand binding, a single transmembrane domain, and an intracellular regulatory domain possessing multiple sites for phosphorylation. Integrin alpha 4 forms heterodimers with integrins beta 1 and beta 7. Integrin alpha 4 is expressed on leukocytes and leukocyte precursors, neural crest cells, and developing skeletal muscles and is essential for embryogenesis, hematopoiesis, and immune responses. The presence of integrin alpha 4 promotes cell migration and inhibits cell spreading and contractility. Integrin alpha 4 function has been implicated in the pathogenesis of multiple diseases including asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohnis disease, ulcerative colitis, hepatitis C, and multiple sclerosis, and therefore, modulation of integrin alpha 4 function has become an important target for drug discovery. Phosphorylation of the serine 988 residue on the integrin alpha 4 cytoplasmic tail inhibits its interaction with the focal adhesion complex associated protein paxillin, and modulates its effects on cell motility and spreading.
