Application Abreviews Notes
Flow Cyt
  • Application notesThe antibody is extremely useful for staining of VCAM-1 expressing endothelial cells.
    It permits staining of in vitro cultured cells and frozen tissue sections.
    The antibody can be used for flow cytometry and immunoprecipitation.

    In vitro cultured cells can be fixed with 1% paraformaldehyde. Tissue sections should be fixed for 10 min in pure acetone followed by incubation for 10 min in chloroform.
    Incubation with a pretested dilution of the antibody is advised followed by a biotin-conjugated anti-murine Ig and a further incubation with an enzyme (alkaline phosphatase) conjugated streptavidin.

    For selection of the most useful dilution in a given situation, a test staining with cells or tissue known to express the antigen should be performed. To this end either cultured endothelial cells or a small fresh skin biopsy can be incubated for 8 hours with TNF alpha (1 ng/ml), IL-1 (100 U/ml) or LPS (1 ug/ml) in tissue culture medium at 37°C.
  • Target

    • FunctionImportant in cell-cell recognition. Appears to function in leukocyte-endothelial cell adhesion. Interacts with the beta-1 integrin VLA4 on leukocytes, and mediates both adhesion and signal transduction. The VCAM1/VLA4 interaction may play a pathophysiologic role both in immune responses and in leukocyte emigration to sites of inflammation.
    • Tissue specificityExpressed on inflammed vascular endothelium, as well as on macrophage-like and dendritic cell types in both normal and inflammed tissue.
    • Sequence similaritiesContains 7 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
    • DomainEither the first or the fourth Ig-like C2-type domain is required for VLA4-dependent cell adhesion.
    • Post-translational
    • Cellular localizationMembrane.
