ZooMAb® antibodies represent an entirely new generation of recombinant monoclonal antibodies.Each ZooMAb® antibody is manufactured using our proprietary recombinant expression system, purified to homogeneity, and precisely dispensed to produce robust and highly reproducible lot-to-lot consistency. Only top-performing clones are released for use by researchers. Each antibody is validated for high specificity and affinity across multiple applications, including its most commonly used application. ZooMAb® antibodies are reliably available and ready to ship when you need them.

Integrin alpha-3 (UniProt: P26006; also known as CD49 antigen-like family member C, FRP-2, Galactoprotein B3, GAPB3, VLA-3 subunit alpha, CD49c) is encoded by the ITGA3 (also known as MSK18) gene (Gene ID: 3675) in human. Integrins are heterodimeric integral membrane proteins composed of an a subunit and b subunit that function in cell surface adhesion and signaling. They contain a large extracellular domain responsible for ligand binding, a single transmembrane domain, and a cytoplasmic domain. The exact combination of various a- and b -subunits dictates the binding specificity of integrins to different ECM components. Although both subunits are required for adhesion, the binding specificity primarily depends on the extracellular portion of the a subunit. The structural and functional diversity of the integrin family is based upon the pairing abilities of the individual a and b subunits. Integrin a -3 is a single-pass type I membrane glycoprotein that is synthesized with a signal peptide (aa 1-32), which is subsequently cleaved off to generate the mature form that contains an extracellular domain (aa 33-991), a transmembrane domain (aa 992-1014), and a cytoplasmic domain (aa 1015-1051). It has two chains- a heavy chain (aa 33-872) and a light chain (aa 876-1051). Integrin a3 dimerizes with integrin b1 to form a receptor for fibronectin, laminin, collagen, epiligrin, thrombospondin, and chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan 4 (CSPG4). It provides a docking site for FAP (seprase) at invadopodia plasma membranes in a collagen-dependent manner and hence may participate in the adhesion, formation of invadopodia and matrix degradation processes, promoting cell invasion. This ZooMAb® recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.
Purified recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibody IgG, lyophilized in PBS with 5% Trehalose, normal appearance a coarse or translucent resin. The PBS/trehalose components in the ZooMAb® formulation can have the appearance of a semi-solid (bead like gel) after lyophilization. This is a normal phenomenon. Please follow the recommended reconstitution procedure in the data sheet to dissolve the semi-solid, bead-like, gel-appearing material. The resulting antibody solution is completely stable and functional as proven by full functional testing. Contains no biocide or preservatives, such as azide, or any animal by-products. Larger pack sizes provided as multiples of 25 μL.
300 μg/mL after reconstitution at 25 μL per vial. Please refer to guidance on suggested starting dilutions and/or titers per application and sample type.
Storage and Stability
Recommend storage of lyophilized product at 2-8°C; Before reconstitution, micro-centrifuge vials briefly to spin down material to bottom of the vial; Reconstitute each vial by adding 25 μL of filtered lab grade water or PBS; Reconstituted antibodies can be stored at 2-8°C, or -20°C for long term storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaws.
