>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.
To protect mouse colonies from infection by pathogens and to assure that experimental preclinical data is not affected by such pathogens, all of Leinco’s Purified Functional PLATINUM™ antibodies are tested and guaranteed to be negative for all pathogens in the IDEXX IMPACT I Mouse Profile.
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.

Clone BE29G1 recognizes mouse ICAM-1.
CD54 is present on endothelial cells, lymphocytes, epithelial cells, dendritic cells and keratinocytes.
ICAM-1 is a 55 kDa glycoprotein that is part of the Ig superfamily. It is heavily glycosylated to form 75 kDa to 115 kDa. ICAM-1 is known to be an adhesion and viral entry molecule, and its long suspected involevement in signal transduction is being elucidated. The signal-transducing functions of ICAM-1 appear to be mainly associated with proinflammatory pathways. Furthermore, ICAM-1 signaling appears to act as a beacon for inflammatory immune cells such as macrophages and granulocytes bringing about inflammation via lymphocyte trafficking. ICAM-1 is essential for the transmigration of leukocytes out of blood vessels and into tissues, and is a marker of endothelial dysfunction leading to damaging vascular disorders in umbilical and placental vascular tissue of gestational pregnancies. ICAM-1 is the receptor for rhinoviruses (the cause of most common colds) and malaria, and plays an inflammatory role in ocular allergies.
