Product specifications for - Anti-Integrin alphaVbeta3 Antibody, clone LM609, FITC conjugated

Product group: Antibodies
Category: Primary Antibodies
Application: Flow Cytometry
Application note: Flow Cytometry: 1-3 ug LM609 per 0.5 x 10e6 cells in 100uL (Smith, 1996). Immunofluorescence: 5-10 ug/mL for staining of bFGF-treated 6 mm cryosections of chick chorioallantoic membrane fixed with acetone (Brooks, 1994). LM609 is also effective on 4% paraformaldehyde fixed, frozen tissues and cells. However it is not effective for immunohistochemical staining of paraffin-embedded tissue sections. Optimal working dilutions and protocols must be determined by end user.

Scientific information: 
Scientific info: The integrin family of cell adhesion receptors consists of at least 16 membrane-associated heterodimers, composed of an alpha and beta subunit that associate in a non-covalent manner. The structure and functional diversity of the integrin family are based upon the pairing abilities of the individual alpha and beta subunits. Key to these molecular interactions between the integrin receptors and their respective ligands is the recognition of the Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) sequence, known to be present in the extracellular matrix components fibronectin, vitronectin, collagen, fibrinogen, and von Willebrand factor (Cheresh, 1991). The involvement of integrins in vascular proliferation, adhesion, and wound repair has been well documented. The adhesion receptor, integrin alphaVbeta3, appears to be selectively expressed on growing blood vessels and has been identified as a marker of angiogenic vascular tissue (Brooks, 1994). Due to its involvement in angiogenesis, integrin alphaVbeta3 is one of the most intensely studied of the integrin receptors.
