Rat anti Dog CD11/CD18 antibody, clone YKIX490.6.4 recognizes the canine leukocyte cell adhesion molecule (LeuCAM) composed of the ~180 kDa CD11a chain complexed with the ~95 kDa common beta chain CD18. The CD11a/CD18 complex is also known as LFA-1.
Rat anti Dog CD11/CD18 has been reported to block T cell proliferation, cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) lysis, antibody dependent cell mediated cytotoxic (ADCC) lysis and homotypic cell adhesion (Cobbold et al. 1994)
