CD106 is a 110 kD transmembrane protein also known as VCAM-1 and INCAM-110. It is an immunoglobulin superfamily member and is expressed on bone marrow stromal cells, myeloid cells, splenic dendritic cells and endothelial cells (activated by cytokines). CD106 is a counter-receptor for VLA-4 (α4β1 integrin) and LPAM-1 (α4β7 integrin). The interactions of CD106 and VLA-4 or LPAM-1 play an important role in binding of leukocytes to activated endothelial cells and leukocyte extravasation at inflammatory sites.

Other Names: VCAM-1, INCAM-110
Structure: Ig superfamily, 110 kD
Distribution: Bone marrow stromal cells, myeloid cells, splenic dendritic cells, induced on endothelial cells
Function: Adhesion, leukocyte extravasation at sites of inflammation
Ligand Receptor: VLA-4 (α41 integrin) and LPAM-1 (α47 integrin)
