This product recognizes mouse integrin beta 4 (CD104), a 200kD glycoprotein that can associate with integrin alpha 6 (CD49f) to form a heterodimer on the cell surface.
Expression of CD104 is localised to the basal region of a wide variety of epithelial cells. In mice, CD104 is also expressed on peripheral neurones, carcinoma cell lines and a subset of endothelial cells.
The alpha 6 beta 4 (CD49f/CD104) integrin has been identified as a component of hemidesmosomes in stratified squamous epithelium where it plays an important role in the adhesion of epithelia to basement membrane.
Studies suggest that the CD49f/CD104 integrin is involved in cell matrix adhesion but expression of the CD49f/CD104 integrin in endothelial cells is thought to have a different function.
Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
If stored in this manner, this product is stable for 18 months after receipt.
