  • 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.
