CD54 [ICAM-1] (human):Fc (human) (rec.) (non-lytic)
|Synonyms||ICAM1; Intercellular Adhesion Molecule 1|
The extracellular domain of human CD54 [ICAM-1] (aa 28-480) is fused to the N-terminus of the Fc region of a mutant human IgG1.
Shows the biological function of the CD54 moiety and exerts a prolonged circulating half-life caused by the modified Fc domain.
|Endotoxin Content||<0.06EU/μg protein (LAL test; Lonza).|
|Reconstitution||Reconstitute at 100μg/ml in sterile PBS.|
|Formulation||Lyophilized from 0.2μm-filtered solution in PBS.|
|Protein Negative Control|
|Other Product Data||
Non-lytic: Acts as a long lasting fusion protein which only binds to the receptor. Mutations to the complement (C1q) and FcgR I binding sites of the IgGs Fc fragment render the fusion proteins incapable of antibody directed cytotoxicity (ADCC) and complement directed cytotoxicity (CDC).

|Product Specification Sheet|
Intercellular Adhesion Molecule-1 (ICAM-1, CD54) binds the leukocyte integrins LFA-1 and Mac1. CD54 expression is weak on leukocytes, epithelial and resting endothelial cells, as well as some other cell types, but expression can be stimulated by IFN-γ, TNF-α, IL-1β and LPS. Soluble CD54 is found in a biologically active form in serum, probably as a result of proteolytic cleavage from the cell surface, and is elevated in patients with various inflammatory syndromes such as septic shock, LAD, cancer and transplantation.
