|Description||ICAMs are members of the Ig superfamily of calcium-independent transmembrane glycoproteins. ICAM-1 is a ligand for lymphocyte function-associated (LFA) and Mac-1 integrins and the major human rhinovirus receptor. The primary function of ICAM-1 is to provide adhesion between endothelial cells and leukocytes after stress or injury. The human ICAM-1 gene codes for a 505 amino acid transmembrane glycoprotein containing a 29 amino acid cytoplasmic domain, a 23 amino acid transmembrane domain, and a 453 amino acid extracellular domain. Recombinant human ICAM-1 is a 49.5 kDa glycoprotein comprising the extracellular domain (453 amino acid residues) of ICAM-1. Monomeric glycosylated ICAM-1 migrates at an apparent molecular weight of approximately 72.0-80.0 kDa by SDS-PAGE analysis under reducing conditions.|
|BiologicalActivity||ICAM-1 supported the adhesion of more than 50% PMA-stimulated HSB2 cells to plates coated at 25μg/ml ICAM-1 concentration.|
|Authenticity||Verified by N-terminal and Mass Spectrometry analyses (when applicable).|
|Endotoxin||Endotoxin level is <0.1 ng/ µg of protein (<1EU/ µg).|
|Protein Content||Verified by UV Spectroscopy and/or SDS-PAGE gel.|
|Precautions||Recombinant Human ICAM-1 is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
