|Target/Specificity||Rabbit anti-Human SDF-1 alpha antibody recognizes human SDF-1 alpha, otherwise known as CXCL12a, a 68 amino acid stromal cell derived CXC chemokine, which arises from alternative splicing of the SDF-1 gene. The two isoforms, SDF-1 alpha and SDF-1 beta, share an identical amino acid sequence, except for an additional four residues in the C-Terminal region of the beta isoform.SDF-1 binds with high-affinity to the G protein–coupled receptor CXCR4 (fusin) and acts as a chemoattractant for T and B lymphocytes, monocytes and migratory neurons, and is a vital factor in haematopoiesis and angiogenesis. By competitively binding to CXCR4, SDF-1 acts as an inhibitor for the CXCR4-mediated entry of HIV-1 virus into target T-cells, and the SDF-1-CXCR4 interaction is important for the regulation of trafficking of normal and malignant stem cells.|
