|Other Names||Junctional adhesion molecule A, JAM-A, Junctional adhesion molecule 1, JAM-1, Platelet F11 receptor, Platelet adhesion molecule 1, PAM-1, CD321, F11R, JAM1, JCAM|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8757b was selected from the C-term region of human F11R. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|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||Seems to play a role in epithelial tight junction formation. Appears early in primordial forms of cell junctions and recruits PARD3 (PubMed:11489913). The association of the PARD6- PARD3 complex may prevent the interaction of PARD3 with JAM1, thereby preventing tight junction assembly (By similarity). Plays a role in regulating monocyte transmigration involved in integrity of epithelial barrier (By similarity). Ligand for integrin alpha- L/beta-2 involved in memory T-cell and neutrophil transmigration (PubMed:11812992). Involved in platelet activation (PubMed:10753840).|
|Cellular Location||Cell junction, tight junction. Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Note=Localized at tight junctions of both epithelial and endothelial cells|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in endothelium, epithelium and leukocytes (at protein level).|

Tight junctions represent one mode of cell-to-cell adhesion in epithelial or endothelial cell sheets, forming continuous seals around cells and serving as a physical barrier to prevent solutes and water from passing freely through the paracellular space. The protein encoded by this immunoglobulin superfamily gene member is an important regulator of tight junction assembly in epithelia. In addition, F11R can act as (1) a receptor for reovirus, (2) a ligand for the integrin LFA1, involved in leukocyte transmigration, and (3) a platelet receptor.
