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.

Description de la cible
Integrin a-5 (UniProt: P08648; also known as CD49 antigen-like family member E, Fibronectin receptor subunit alpha, Integrin alpha-F, VLA-5, CD49e) is encoded by the ITGA5 (also known as FNRA) gene (Gene ID: 3678) in human. Integrins are heterodimeric integral membrane proteins composed of an alpha subunit and a beta subunit that function in cell surface adhesion and signaling. Integrin a-5 is expressed on thymocytes, T cells, monocytes, platelets, early B cells, and activated in B cells. Integrin a-5 exhibits an increased expression in mesodermal progenitors and is shown to be prevalent in fetal cardiomyocytes. Its deletion is shown to cause mesodermal defects during embryogenesis in murine models. Membrane fractions obtained from fibroblasts of diabetic animals display significant reduction in integrin a-5 levels. Integrin a-5 is a single-pass type I membrane glycoprotein that is synthesized with a signal peptide (aa 1-41), which is subsequently cleaved off to generate the mature form that contains a heavy chain (aa 42-894) and a light chain (aa 895-1049). Structurally, it consists of an extracellular domain (aa 42-995), a transmembrane domain (aa 996-1021), and a cytoplasmic domain (aa 1022-1049). It contains four calcium binding sites (aa 480-488; 334-342; 401-409; and 465-473). When associated with b-1 subunit it can serve as a receptor for fibronectin and fibrinogen. It recognizes the sequence R-G-D in its ligands. This ZooMAb recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.
