Specifications for Integrin β5 Antibody, anti-human, REAfinity™


Clone REA718 recognizes the human integrin β5 antigen, a 95 kDa glycoprotein single-pass type I membrane protein. Integrins are a family of transmembrane receptors that mediate adhesion of cells to extracellular matrices, as well as intercellular interactions. These interactions transduce signals that control complex cell functions such as proliferation, differentiation, and survival, and require the regulation of gene expression. Integrins are heterodimeric glycoprotein receptors and exist as non-covalently bound α and β subunits. The integrin αV/β5 heterodimer is found on many types of tissue cells, such as epithelial cells, endothelial cells, keratinocytes, and osteoblastic cells. It is a receptor for fibronectin and vitronectin and acts as a receptor for adenovirus type C.
Additional information: Clone REA718 displays negligible binding to Fc receptors.
