|Target/Specificity||Rat anti-Mouse CD49d monoclonal antibody, clone PS/2 recognizes murine alpha 4 integrin (CD49d), a ~150kDa single pass type I membrane glycoprotein that can associate with either beta 1 integrin (CD29) or beta 7 integrin to form heterodimers CD49d/CD29 (VLA-4) and alpha4/beta7 (LPAM-1) respectively (Holzmannet al.1989). CD49d is expressed on most lymphocytes, granulocytes, monocytes and thymocytes. The primary ligands for CD49d are CD106 (VCAM-1), fibronectin and MAdCAM-1 (Sheppardet al.1994).Clone PS/2 has also been reported to block the binding of CD49d to its ligands (Andrewet al.1994).|
