|RP23-418O11.10-001, CD102, Icam-2, Ly-60|
|A DNA sequence encoding the mouse ICAM2 (NP_034624.1) extracellular domain (Met 1-Gln 222) was fused with the Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus.|
|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.
|> 93 % as determined by SDS-PAGE|
|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 mouse ICAM2 coated plates (12.5 μg/ml, 100 μl/well), approximately 25-40% will adhere specifically.|
|< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method|
|Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃|
|The secreted recombinant mouse ICAM2/Fc is a disulfide-linked homodimeric protein. The reduced monomer comprises 444 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 50 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, the apparent molecular mass of rm ICAM2/Fc monomer is approximately 60-70 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.|
|Lyophilized from sterile 50mM Tris-Citric acid, 150mM NaCl, pH 5.5|
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.
|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.|
|A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.|
Intercellular adhesion molecule 2 (ICAM-2, CD102), belongs to the ICAM family consisting of three members identified as ligands for integrin receptors. It is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein with two Ig-like C2-type domains, and binds to the leukocyte integrins LFA-1 (CD11a/CD18) and Mac-1 (CD11b/CD18). As a second ligand of leukocyte function-associated antigen-1, ICAM-2 functions as a costimulatory molecule for effector cells. ICAM-2 is mainly expressed on vascular endothelial and hematopoietic cells. Interactions of ICAM-2 and the integrin receptors mediate cell adhesion in a wide range of lymphocyte, monocyte, natural killer cell, and granulocytewith other cells, and play important roles in many adhesion-dependent immune and inflammation responses, such as T cell aggregation, NK-cell cytotoxicity and migration, lymphocyte recirculation, etc. Serum levels of ICAM-2 correlated significantly with the inflammatory and course sequences of trichinosis in mice and had a similar relation with blood eosinophilia. So, estimation of ICAM-2 serum levels may prove useful in diagnosis of trichinosis recent infections, and in monitoring the prognosis and response to treatment.
