  • Function
    Important 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 specificity
    Expressed on inflammed vascular endothelium, as well as on macrophage-like and dendritic cell types in both normal and inflammed tissue.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 7 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
  • Domain
    Either the first or the fourth Ig-like C2-type domain is required for VLA4-dependent cell adhesion.

I have contacted the lab and will let you know what explanation they have for the 55 kDa band.

As for the reference I found in our internal notes, it says: Researchers have shown detecting a band at 43kda which is a GPI-VCAM1. http://www....

Thanks you for your email. I understand customer's concerns. The predicted band size of VCAM1 is 81kDa however due to protein glycosylation the observed band size should be near 100 kDa. This is what we are observing with different antibodies an...
