C57BL/6 mouse bone marrow cells

C57BL/6 mouse bone marrow cells stained with 429 APC



Description:

CD106 is a 110 kD glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-linked transmembrane protein, also known as VCAM-1 and INCAM-110. It is constitutively expressed on bone marrow stromal cells, myeloid progenitors, splenic dendritic cells, activated endothelial cells, as well as some lymphocytes. CD106 expression can be upregulated on endothelial cells by inflammatory cytokines. CD106 is involved in adhesion and acts as a counter-receptor for VLA-4 (α41 integrin) and LPAM-1 (α47 integrin). The 429 antibody has been reported to partially block VCAM-1-mediated binding.

Other Names: VCAM-1, INCAM-110
Structure: Ig superfamily, 47 kD
Distribution: Bone marrow stromal cells, myeloid progenitors, splenic dendritic cells, activated endothelial cells
Function: Adhesion
Ligand Receptor: VLA-4 (α41 integrin) and LPAM-1 (α47 integrin)
