Clone M1/70 recognizes the α subunit (CD11b) of the mouse CD11b/CD18 complex.
CD11b is expressed on human peripheral blood lymphocytes, NK lymphocytes, monocytes, granulocytes, a subset of T-cells and macrophages.
LFA-1α (CD11a) and CD18 are the Integrin alpha-L and beta-2 chains respectively that combine to form LFA-1, a glycoprotein and a member of the Integrin family. Integrin alpha-L/beta-2 is a receptor for ICAM1, ICAM2, ICAM3, ICAM4 and for F11R. LFA-1 participates in the immunological synapses between CD8+ T lymphocytes and antigen-presenting cells. The absence of LFA-1α or ß may induce LAD. The antigen contributes to natural killer cell cytotoxicity, and is involved in various immune phenomena such as leukocyte-endothelial cell interaction, cytotoxic T-cell mediated killing, and antibody dependent killing by granulocytes and monocytes. The CD11b/CD18 antigen is a heterodimeric surface glycoprotein on leukocytes and belongs to the ß2 integrin family. CD11b functions as a receptor for C3bi complement, clotting factor X, fibrinogen and ICAM-1. CD11c forms an α/ß heterodimeric glycoprotein (CD11c/CD18 complex) which belongs to the ß2 integrin family. The complex binds fibrinogen and reportedly serves as a receptor for iC3b and ICAM-1. During inflammatory responses, it mediates cell to cell interaction and is important in both monocyte adhesion and chemotaxis.
