|Other Names||Intercellular adhesion molecule 2, ICAM-2, CD102, ICAM2|
|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||ICAM proteins are ligands for the leukocyte adhesion protein LFA-1 (integrin alpha-L/beta-2). ICAM2 may play a role in lymphocyte recirculation by blocking LFA-1-dependent cell adhesion. It mediates adhesive interactions important for antigen- specific immune response, NK-cell mediated clearance, lymphocyte recirculation, and other cellular interactions important for immune response and surveillance.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein|

The protein encoded by this gene is a member of theintercellular adhesion molecule (ICAM) family. All ICAM proteinsare type I transmembrane glycoproteins, contain 2-9immunoglobulin-like C2-type domains, and bind to the leukocyteadhesion LFA-1 protein. This protein may play a role in lymphocyterecirculation by blocking LFA-1-dependent cell adhesion. Itmediates adhesive interactions important for antigen-specificimmune response, NK-cell mediated clearance, lymphocyterecirculation, and other cellular interactions important for immuneresponse and surveillance. Several transcript variants encoding thesame protein have been found for this gene.
