|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Vitronectin Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Vitronectin is a cell adhesion and spreading factor found in serum and tissues. Vitronectin interact with glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans. Is recognized by certain members of the integrin family and serves as a cell-to-substrate adhesion molecule. Inhibitor of the membrane-damaging effect of the terminal cytolytic complement pathway.|
|Cellular Location||Secreted, extracellular space.|

Vitronectin also called serum spreading factor or complement S-protein, is a member of the pexin family (1). Found in serum and in tissues, Vitronectin exist in two forms; as a single chain (75kDa) and as a clipped form composed of two chains (65kDa and 10kDa). Vitronectin promotes cell adhesion, spreading and migration through specific interactions with cellular integrins, and inhibits cytolysis by the complement C5b-9 complex (2-4). Vitronectin also interacts with several critical proteins that regulate thrombosis and fibrinolysis. Vitronectin is phosphorylated by PKA and CKII (5).
