Rat anti Mouse CD49b monoclonal antibody, clone DX5 recognizes mouse CD49b, also known as Very Late Antigen-2 (VLA-2) or alpha-2 integrin. CD49b is a ~160kDa single pass type I membrane protein expressed by NK cells and a small subset of T-cells (Pellicci et al. 2005).

Rat anti mouse CD49b, clone DX5 stains NK cells from all mouse strains tested including Balb/c mice (Arese et al. 2001). CD49b acts as a receptor for collagen, laminin, fibronectin and E-cadherin (Carafoli et al. 2013).
