FunctionPlays a central role in cell adhesion in hematopoietic cells. Acts by activating the integrin beta-1-3 (ITGB1, ITGB2 and ITGB3). Required for integrin-mediated platelet adhesion and leukocyte adhesion to endothelial cells. Required for activation of integrin beta-2 (ITGB2) in polymorphonuclear granulocytes (PMNs).
Isoform 2 may act as a repressor of NF-kappa-B and apoptosis.
Tissue specificityHighly expressed in lymph node. Expressed in thymus, spleen and leukocytes. Weakly expressed in placenta, small intestine, stomach, testis and lung. Overexpressed in B-cell malignancies.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in FERMT3 are the cause of leukocyte adhesion deficiency type 3 (LAD3) [MIM:612840]; also called leukocyte adhesion deficiency 1 variant (LAD1v). LAD3 is a rare syndrome characterized by infections without pus formation in the presence of a leukocytosis combined with a Glanzmann-type bleeding disorder, resulting from a hematopoietic defect in integrin activation. Symptoms arise from an inability to activate the integrins expressed on hematopoietic cells, including platelets and leukocytes.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the kindlin family.
Contains 1 FERM domain.
Contains 1 PH domain.
DomainThe FERM domain is not correctly detected by PROSITE or Pfam techniques because it contains the insertion of a PH domain.
Cellular localizationCell projection > podosome. Present in the F-actin surrounding ring structure of podosomes, which are specialized adhesion structures of hematopoietic cells.

IHC image of URP2/Kindlin-3 staining in Human normal spleen formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica Bond™ system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab173416, 0.1µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.
For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.

Predicted band size: 76 kDa
Observed band size: 76 kDa
Additional bands at: 33 kDa (possible cleavage fragment)
Exposure time: 4 minutes
We believe that the band observed at approximately 33-kDa is a C-terminal cleavage fragment of URP2/Kindlin-3, which has been described in the literature (PMID 23012377). Abcam welcomes customer feedback and would appreciate any comments regarding this product and the data presented above.
