|Mouse anti Human CD49d monoclonal antibody, clone Bu49 recognizes human CD49d, also known as integrin alpha 4 or VLA-4 alpha subunit. CD49d is a ~150 kDa single pass type I transmembrane glycoprotein. CD49d can be proteolytically cleaved to yield fragments of ~80 and ~70 kDa (Hemler et al. 1987). CD49d associates with either CD29 to form VLA-4 or with Integrin beta-7 to form The Peyer's patches-specific homing receptor LPAM-1, involved in the lymphocyte migration and homing to gut-associated lymphoid tissue (Sackstein 2006) through its interaction with MadCam-1, preferentially expressed on Peyer's patch high endothelial venules and postcapillary venules in lamina propria (Briskin et al. 1997).
CD49d is expressed on a broad range of cells including lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils and thymocytes. CD49d expression may serve as a prognostic parker of survival and disease progression in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia and may have therapeutic potential (Bulian et al. 2008).
Mouse anti human CD49, clone Bu49 cross-reacts with the canine B-cell leukemia cell line GL-1 and induces homotypic cell aggregation (Ikewaki et al. 2010).
