25x Biotin-detection Ab (Mouse sVCAM-1 Biotin-dAb). PN: B213334B. One vial containing 100 µL of biotinylated anti-mouse sVCAM-1.

Lyophilized Standard Mix - Mouse Group 5 Panel A, 9-Plex. PN: MG5009A. One vial containing lyophilized recombinant sCD10, sCD14, sICAM, sE-selectin, sL-selectin, sP-selectin, sVCAM, sCD30L, and sCD40L.  Note: If multiple analyte kits on the above target list are ordered as a panel, only one vial of standard mix is supplied for those analyte kits.

IMPORTANT: Sodium azide forms explosive compounds with heavy metals. These products contain <0.05% (w/w) azide which with repeated contact with lead and copper commonly found in plumbing drains may result in the buildup of shock sensitive compounds. Dispose in accordance with regulations from your institute.

APPLICATION: Optimal antibody pair and antigen standard for assaying human Mouse VCAM-1/sCD106. Can be multiplexed with other analytes in Mouse Group 5.  To be used in conjunction with the AimPlex Mouse/Rat Basic Kit (PN: P200201) and a diluent kit. Refer to the AimPlex Multiplex Immunoassay User Manual and kit inserts for the assay procedure.

Description:

Vascular cell adhesion protein 1 also known as vascular cell adhesion molecule 1 (VCAM-1) or cluster of differentiation 106 (CD106) is a protein that functions as a cell adhesion molecule. The VCAM-1 protein mediates the adhesion of lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils, and basophils to vascular endothelium. It also functions in leukocyte-endothelial cell signal transduction, and it may play a role in the development of atherosclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis. Diseases associated with VCAM1 include Mooren's Ulcer and vasculitis.
