|Target/Specificity||Mouse anti-Human CD49d monoclonal antibody, clone Bu49 recognizes human CD49d, also known as integrin alpha 4 or VLA-4 alpha subunit. CD49d is a 150kDa single pass type I transmembrane glycoprotein. CD49d can be proteolytically cleaved to yield framents of 80 and 70kDa (Hemleret al.1987). CD49d associates with either CD29 to form VLA-4 or with Integrin beta-7 to form The Peyer patches-specific homing receptor LPAM-1, involved in the lymphocyte migration and homing to gut-associated lymphoid tissue (Sackstein 2006) through its interaction with MadCam-1, preferentially expressed on Peyer’s patch high endothelial venules and postcapillary venules in lamina propria (Briskinet al.1997). CD49d is expressed on a broad range of cells including lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils and thymocytes. CD49d expression may serve as a prognostic parker of survival and disease progression in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia and may have therapeutic potential (Bulianet al.2008)Mouse anti-human CD49, clone Bu49 cross-reacts with the canine B-cell leukemia cell line GL-1 and induces homotypic cell aggregation (Ikewakiet al.2010)|
