< 1.0 EU/mg as determined by the LAL method
≥95% monomer by analytical SEC
>95% by SDS Page
This monoclonal antibody is aseptically packaged and formulated in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline (150 mM NaCl) PBS pH 7.2 - 7.4 with no carrier protein, potassium, calcium or preservatives added. Due to inherent biochemical properties of antibodies, certain products may be prone to precipitation over time. Precipitation may be removed by aseptic centrifugation and/or filtration.
Functional grade preclinical antibodies are manufactured in an animal free facility using only In vitro protein free cell culture techniques and are purified by a multi-step process including the use of protein A or G to assure extremely low levels of endotoxins, leachable protein A or aggregates.
Storage and Handling
Functional grade preclinical antibodies may be stored sterile as received at 2-8°C for up to one month. For longer term storage, aseptically aliquot in working volumes without diluting and store at -80°C. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles.

Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
Rat Anti-Mouse CD54 (Clone BE29G1) recognizes the (Mr 95 kD) cell surface glycoprotein known as intracellular adhesion molecule ICAM-1. ICAM-1 is the receptor for LFA-1 (CD11a/CD18) and Mac-1 (CD11b/CD18).1,2,3
The CD54 antigen is present on endothelial cells, lymphocytes, epithelial cells, dendritic cells and keratinocytes. It has been demonstrated that ICAM-1 enhances T-cell activation.
Intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) is one of an important cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) family transmembrane glycoprotein1 and is critical for the firm arrest and transmigration of leukocytes out of blood vessels and into tissues. ICAM-1 is constitutively present on endothelial cells, but its expression is increased by proinflammatory cytokines.2 ICAM-1 is a marker of endothelial dysfunction leading to damaging vascular disorders, in umbilical and placental vascular tissue of gestational pregnancies.3
