|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Calculated MW||126606 Da|
|Antigen Region||1082-1110 aa|
|Other Names||Integrin alpha-6, CD49 antigen-like family member F, VLA-6, CD49f, Integrin alpha-6 heavy chain, Integrin alpha-6 light chain, Processed integrin alpha-6, Alpha6p, ITGA6|
|Target/Specificity||This CD49f antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 1082-1110 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human CD49f.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||CD49f Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Integrin alpha-6/beta-1 is a receptor for laminin on platelets. Integrin alpha-6/beta-4 is a receptor for laminin in epithelial cells and it plays a critical structural role in the hemidesmosome (By similarity). ITGA6:ITGB4 binds to NRG1 (via EGF domain) and this binding is essential for NRG1-ERBB signaling (PubMed:20682778). ITGA6:ITGB4 binds to IGF1 and this binding is essential for IGF1 signaling (PubMed:22351760).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Cell membrane; Lipid-anchor|
|Tissue Location||Integrin alpha-6/beta-4 is predominantly expressed by epithelia. Isoforms containing segment X1 are ubiquitously expressed. Isoforms containing segment X1X2 are expressed in heart, kidney, placenta, colon, duodenum, myoblasts and myotubes, and in a limited number of cell lines; they are always coexpressed with the ubiquitous isoform containing segment X1. In some tissues (e.g. Salivary gland), isoforms containing cytoplasmic segment A and isoforms containing segment B are detected while in others, only isoforms containing one cytoplasmic segment are found (segment A in epidermis and segment B in kidney).|
Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
The CD49f protein product is the integrin alpha chain alpha 6. Integrins are integral cell-surface proteins composed of an alpha chain and a beta chain. A given chain may combine with multiple partners resulting in different integrins. For example, alpha 6 may combine with beta 4 in the integrin referred to as TSP180, or with beta 1 in the integrin VLA-6. Integrins are known to participate in cell adhesion as well as cell-surface mediated signalling.
