Integrin alpha 4 beta 1,ITGA4&ITGB1
Biotinylated Human ITGA4&ITGB1 Heterodimer Protein, His,Avitag&Tag Free (IT1-H82W1) is expressed from human 293 cells (HEK293). It contains AA Tyr 34 - Thr 977 (ITGA4) & Gln 21 - Asp 728 (ITGB1) (Accession # P13612-1 (ITGA4) & P05556-1 (ITGB1)).
Predicted N-terminus: Tyr 34 & Ser 592 (ITGA4) & Gln 21 (ITGB1)
Biotinylated Human ITGA4&ITGB1 Heterodimer Protein, His,Avitag&Tag Free, produced by co-expression of ITGA4 and ITGB1, has a calculated MW of 113.2 kDa (ITGA4) and 83.7 kDa (ITGB1). Subunit ITGA4 is fused with an acidic tail at the C-terminus and followed by a polyhistidine tag and an Avi tag (Avitag™) and subunit ITGB1 contains no tag but a basic tail at the C-terminus. The ITGA4 subunit is composed of a heavy chain (Tyr 34 - Arg 591, calculated MW 61.1 kDa) and a light chain (Ser 592 - Thr 977, calculated MW 52.1 kDa). Consequently ITGA4 migrates as 65-75 kDa, 80-85 kDa and 135-150 kDa, and ITGB1 as 100-133 kDa respectively under reducing (R) condition due to cleavage and glycosylation.
Biotinylation of this product is performed using Avitag™ technology. Briefly, the single lysine residue in the Avitag is enzymatically labeled with biotin.
Less than 1.0 EU per μg by the LAL method.
>95% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in 50 mM Tris, 150 mM NaCl, pH7.5. Normally trehalose is added as protectant before lyophilization.

Integrins are transmembrane proteins that mediate interactions between adhesion molecules on adjacent cells and/or the extracellular matrix (ECM). Integrins have diverse roles in several biological processes including cell migration during development and wound healing, cell differentiation, and apoptosis. Their activities can also regulate the metastatic and invasive potential of tumor cells. Integrin alpha 4 beta 1(Alpha-4/beta-1) is receptors for fibronectin. Integrin alpha-4/beta-1 is a receptor for VCAM1 and recognizes the sequence Q-I-D-S in VCAM1.
