Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab11470 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
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.
WB Use at an assay dependent concentration.
Flow Cyt Use a concentration of 1 - 10 µg/ml.

ab170190 - Mouse monoclonal IgG1, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.



  • Function

    The alpha-V integrins are receptors for vitronectin, cytotactin, fibronectin, fibrinogen, laminin, matrix metalloproteinase-2, osteopontin, osteomodulin, prothrombin, thrombospondin and vWF. They recognize the sequence R-G-D in a wide array of ligands. In case of HIV-1 infection, the interaction with extracellular viral Tat protein seems to enhance angiogenesis in Kaposi's sarcoma lesions.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the integrin alpha chain family.
    Contains 7 FG-GAP repeats.

  • ICC/IF image of ab11470 stained A549 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab11470, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96879, a goat anti-mouse DyLight® 488 (IgG; H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

  • Overlay histogram showing A549 cells stained with ab11470 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab11470, 1µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was a goat anti-mouse DyLight® 488 (IgG; H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed. This antibody gave a positive result in 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min) fixed A549 cells used under the same conditions.

    Please note that Abcam do not have any data for use of this antibody on non-fixed cells. We welcome any customer feedback.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for contacting us. I am very sorry for the delay in getting back to you, I have been trying to collect additional information about this clone to share with you in order to clarify the situation.

It appears that we have made a mistake as you have pointed out. The P2W7 clone was raised against an ocular melanoma cell line (V+B2) which expresses high levels of integrin alpha V beta 1.

I am sorry for this confusion. We will be updating this information on our datasheet. Thank you very much for pointing this out to us.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us again.
