Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab19569 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-Fr Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration.

Immunoprecipitation of the VCAM1 integrin complex.

ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.
Functional Studies Use at an assay dependent concentration.

Studies of cell-cell interaction. Cell adhesion assays. Inhibition of lymphopoiesis in Whitlock-Witte long term marrow cultures.

  • Application notesIs unsuitable for IHC-P.
  • 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.
