Flow cytometry analysis of CD49d in THP-1 cells (green) compared to an isotype control (blue). Cells were harvested, adjusted to a concentration of 1-5x10^6 cells/ml, fixed with 2% paraformaldehyde and washed with PBS. Cells were blocked with a 2% solution of BSA-PBS for 30 min at room temperature and incubated with a CD49d monoclonal antibody (Product # MA49D7) at a dilution of 0.5 ug/test for 60 min at room temperature. Cells were then incubated for 40 min at room temperature in the dark using a Dylight 488-conjugated secondary antibody and re-suspended in PBS for FACS analysis.

MA49D7 targets CD49d in FACS, IHC, and Neu applications and shows reactivity with Rat and Human samples.
The MA49D7 immunogen is rat 150 kD alpha4 chain of VLA-4 (CD49d).
MA49D7 detects CD49d which has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 111 kDa.
The product of this gene belongs to the integrin alpha chain family of proteins. Integrins are heterodimeric integral membrane proteins composed of an alpha chain and a beta chain. This gene encodes an alpha 4 chain. Unlike other integrin alpha chains, alpha 4 neither contains an I-domain, nor undergoes disulfide-linked cleavage. Alpha 4 chain associates with either beta 1 chain or beta 7 chain.
