Human ICAM3 Protein Product Information
Synonym:CD50, CDW50, ICAM-R
Protein Construction:The extracellular domain (Met 1-His 485) of human ICAM3 (NP_002153.2) precursor was fused with the C-terminal polyhistidine-tagged Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus.
Expressed Host:Human Cells
Shipping:In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
Human ICAM3 Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 97 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bio-Activity:Measured by the ability of the immobilized protein to support the adhesion of PMA stimulated HSB2 human peripheral blood acute lymphoblastic leukemia cells. When cells are added to ICAM3 coated plates (12.5 μg/ml, 100 μl/well), approximately 45%-60% will adhere specifically .
Endotoxin:< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Stability:Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Predicted N Terminal:Gln 30
Molecule Mass:The recombinant human ICAM3/Fc is a disulfide-linked homodimeric protein. The reduced monomer consists of 703 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 77.2 kDa. By SDS-PAGE, the apparent molecular mass of rh ICAM3/Fc is approximately 125-135 kDa due to the glycosylation.
Formulation:Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose and mannitol are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
Human ICAM3 Protein Usage Guide
Storage:Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.

ICAM-3 / CD50 Background

The protein ICAM-3, also known as CD50, is a member of the intercellular adhesion molecule (ICAM) family consisting three members. It is a DC-SIGN ligand that is constitutively expressed on resting leukocytes, and is thus an important molecule for the first immune response. ICAM-3 comprises of five immunoglobulin-like domains, and binds LFA-1 through its two N-terminal domains. It functions not only as an adhesion molecule, but also as a potent signalling molecule. ICAM-3 binds to LFA-1 on antigen-presenting cells (APC) stabilizing the T cell-APC interaction, facilitating signaling through the CD3/TCR complex. However, recent evidence using cultured and transformed T cells suggests ICAM-3 may also function in signaling. It has been reported that CD50 molecule can play a role in developing functionally mature T lymphocytes and its expression increases during the maturation process of T lymphocytes. In addition, the interactions of ICAM-3 and LFA-1 facilitate HIV-1- induced virological synapse formation between T cells. ICAM-3 is associated with an increase of cellular radio-resistance and cancer cell proliferation. It could be considered as a candidate for anti-cancer drug development and as a cancer diagnostic marker.
