|Other Names||Integrin alpha-M, CD11 antigen-like family member B, CR-3 alpha chain, Cell surface glycoprotein MAC-1 subunit alpha, Leukocyte adhesion receptor MO1, Neutrophil adherence receptor, CD11b, ITGAM, CD11B, CR3A|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Integrin alpha-M/beta-2 is implicated in various adhesive interactions of monocytes, macrophages and granulocytes as well as in mediating the uptake of complement-coated particles. It is identical with CR-3, the receptor for the iC3b fragment of the third complement component. It probably recognizes the R-G-D peptide in C3b. Integrin alpha-M/beta-2 is also a receptor for fibrinogen, factor X and ICAM1. It recognizes P1 and P2 peptides of fibrinogen gamma chain.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Predominantly expressed in monocytes and granulocytes|

CD11b is the integrin alpha M chain. Integrinsare heterodimeric integral membrane proteins composed of an alphachain and a beta chain. This I-domain containing alpha integrincombines with the beta 2 chain (ITGB2) to form a leukocyte-specificintegrin referred to as macrophage receptor 1 ('Mac-1'), orinactivated-C3b (iC3b) receptor 3 ('CR3'). The alpha M beta 2integrin is important in the adherence of neutrophils and monocytesto stimulated endothelium, and also in the phagocytosis ofcomplement coated particles.
