Background Descriptions: Cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) are a family of closely related cell surface glycoproteins involved in cell-cell interactions during growth and are thought to play an important role in embryogenesis and development. The family contains NCAM (for neuronal cell adhesion molecule), ICAM (for intercellular adhesion molecule), VCAM (vascular cell adhesion molecule), PECAM-1 (platelet/endothelial cell adhesion molecule-1), etc. ICAM-2 is involved in lymphocyte recirculation by blocking LFA-1-dependent cell adhesion.
Handling: The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
Usage: For Research Use Only! Not to be used in humans.
