      Descriptionα Integrin-mediated Cell Adhesion Array Kit, colorimetric

      Cell adhesion plays a major role in cellular communication and regulation, and is of fundamental importance in the development and maintenance of tissues. A family of cell surface receptors, the integrins, mediates cell attachment to proteins of the extracellular matrix. Integrins are heterodimer molecules containing an alpha and beta transmembrane glycoprotein subunit that are non-covalently bound together (1-2). Historically, antibodies have been used to determine the integrin profiles of cells by immunoprecipitation, immunofluorescence, immunoblotting, and flow cytometry. These methods are time-consuming, laborious or require sophisticated equipment.

      The CHEMICON® Alpha Integrin-Mediated Cell Adhesion Array kit is designed as a cost effective, efficient method for identification of cell surface integrins. The kit format uses 12 x 8-well removable strips in a plate frame for convenience and flexibility in designing assays. The Integrin-Mediated Cell Adhesion Array can be completed within 1-2 hours, providing a rapid, quantitative assay for the characterization of alpha integrin surface expression.

      In addition, Chemicon continues to provide numerous migration, invasion, and adhesion products including:

      Test Principle

      The CHEMICON® Alpha Integrin-Mediated Cell Adhesion Array uses mouse monoclonal antibodies generated against human alpha integrins/subunits (alpha1, alpha2, alpha3, alpha4, alpha5, alphaV, and alphavbeta3), that are immobilized onto a goat anti-mouse antibody coated microtiter plate. The plate is then used to capture cells expressing these integrins on their cell surface; goat anti-mouse antibody coated wells are provided as a negative assay control. Each strip (8 wells total) consists of 7 integrin antibody coated wells and one negative control well (see plate layout on page 3). Experimental cells are seeded onto the coated substrate and incubated. Subsequently, unbound cells are washed away, and adherent cells are fixed and stained. Relative cell attachment is determined using absorbance readings.

      Biological Information
      Species Reactivity
      • Human
      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummaryThis gene encodes the alpha 1 subunit of integrin receptors. This protein heterodimerizes with the beta 1 subunit to form a cell-surface receptor for collagen and laminin. The heterodimeric receptor is involved in cell-cell adhesion and may play a role in inflammation and fibrosis. The alpha 1 subunit contains an inserted (I) von Willebrand factor type I domain which is thought to be involved in collagen binding.
