||Intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) is one of an important cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) family transmembrane glycoprotein and is critical for the firm arrest and transmigration of leukocytes out of blood vessels and into tissues. ICAM-1 is constitutively present on endothelial cells, but its expression is increased by proinflammatory cytokines. ICAM-1 is a marker of endothelial dysfunction leading to damaging vascular disorders, in umbilical and placental vascular tissue of gestational pregnancies.
||The predicted molecular weight of Recombinant Rat ICAM-1 is Mr 78 kDa. However, the actual molecular weight as observed by migration on SDS Page is Mr 110-125 kDa.
|State Of Matter:
||>95% by SDS Page and analyzed by silver stain.
||<1.0 EU/µg as determined by the LAL method
|Storage And Stability:
||This lyophilized protein is stable for six to twelve months when stored desiccated at -20°Cto -70°C. After aseptic reconstitution, this protein may be stored at 2°Cto 8°Cfor one month or at -20°Cto -70°Cin a manual defrost freezer. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles. See Product Insert for exact lot specific storage instructions.
