Description: Recognizes the D1 domain of human CD54.
Intercellular Adhesion Molecule-1 (ICAM-1) is a member of the immunoglobulin supergene family and functions as a ligand for the Lymphocyte Function-Associated Antigen-1 (LFA-1), an alpha-betacomplex that is a member of the leukocyte integrin family of cell-cell and cell-matrix receptors.
ICAM-1 is a single-chain glycoprotein with a polypeptide core of 55 kD that can be expressed on non-hematopoietic cells of many lineages such as vascular endothelial cells, thymic epithelial cells, other epithelial cells and fibroblasts and on hematopoietic cells such as tissue macrophages, mitogen-stimulated T-lymphoblasts, germinal center B cells and dendritic cells in tonsils, lymph nodes and Peyer's patches.
ICAM-1 is inducible on fibroblasts and endothelial cells by inflammatory mediators such as IL-1, TNF and IFN-gamma within few hours and is correlated to the infiltration of lymphocytes into inflammatory lesions. ICAM-1 seems to be the initial marker of inflammatory reactions and is expressed prior to, and to a greater extent than is HLA-DR.
sICAM-1 serum levels were found elevated in acute renal graft rejection, insulin-dependent diabetis mellitus, anterior uveitis and in allergic inflammation.
Applications Tested: ELISA, Flow Cytometry, Functional Studies (Blocking), Immunohistochemistry, Western Blotting.
ICAM-1 (intercellular adhesion molecule) has 7 potential N-linked glycosylation sites. It is a single chain glycoprotein of Ig supergene family, present on unstimulated endo-thelial cells (EC) and on a variety of other cell types including activated fibroblasts, EC, macrophages, and lymphocytes. ICAM-1 mediates cell adhesion by binding to integrins CD11a/CD18 (leukocyte adhesion molecule, LFA-1) and to CD11b/CD18 (Mac-1).
