  • FunctionIntegrin alpha-X/beta-2 is a receptor for fibrinogen. It recognizes the sequence G-P-R in fibrinogen. It mediates cell-cell interaction during inflammatory responses. It is especially important in monocyte adhesion and chemotaxis.
  • Tissue specificityPredominantly expressed in monocytes and granulocytes.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the integrin alpha chain family.
    Contains 7 FG-GAP repeats.
    Contains 1 VWFA domain.
  • DomainThe integrin I-domain (insert) is a VWFA domain. Integrins with I-domains do not undergo protease cleavage.
  • Cellular localizationMembrane.

Anti-CD11c antibody [N418] images

  • Mouse splenic cells were incubated with anti-CD11c antibody ab33483 at 1/100 dilution for 30 min at 4°C. The secondary antibody used was goat anti-Armenian Hamster (Alexa Fluor® 488)  preadsorbed at 1/100 dilution for 30 min at 4°C. The cells were simultaneously stained with CD3 PE-conjugated (ab22268) at 1/200 dilution.

    Acquisition of >30,000 total events were collected. Gating strategy – events were collected with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable lymphocytes.

  • Flow cytometry analysis of murine alveolar cells extracted using bronchoaveolar lavage in balb/c mice using 3mM PBS-EDTA, labelling CD11c with ab33483 at 1/2000, incubated for 20 mins at 20°C. Secondary used was ab175680 at 1/2000. Gating strategy was against CD45+, C11b+, GR1-cells.

  • ab33483 staining CD11c in murine bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) cells by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence.
    BAL cells were collected from PBS treated mice at day 13, 17 or 18 (17/18) and 21 post-reconstitution. Cells were stained with ab33483 specific for CD11c (green) and Pc (red). Representative images of brightfield (BF), CD11c, Pc, and merged CD11c/Pc are shown for PBS-treated mice following immune reconstitution Day 21.
