Description générale

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.

Clone 5E18 is a ZooMAb rabbit recombinant monoclonal antibody that specifically detects Integrin a-5. It targets an epitope within 24 amino acids from the C-terminal, cytoplasmic domain.


KLH-conjugated linear peptide corresponding to 24 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human Integrin a-5


Anti-Integrin a-5, clone 5E18 ZooMAb, Cat. No. ZRB1122, is a recombinant Rabbit monoclonal antibody that detects Integrin a-5 and is tested in Affinity Binding Assay, Flow Cytometry, Immunocytochemistry, Immunohistochemistry, and Western Blotting.
Western Blotting Analysis: A 1:1,000 dilution from a representative lot detected Integrin -5 in HT-1080 and NIH3T3 cell lysates.

Flow Cytometry Analysis: 1 μg from a representative lot detected Integrin -5 in one million HelL cells.

Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin) Analysis: A 1:1,000 dilution from a representative lot detected Integrin -5 in human placenta tissue sections.

Affinity Binding Assay: A representative lot of this antibody bound Integrin a-5 peptide with a KD of 2.5 x 10-8 in an affinity binding assay.

Immunocytochemistry Analysis: A 1:1,0000 dilution from a representative lot detected Integrin -5 in HeLa cell line, A431 cell line, HUVEC cell line and NIH 3T3 cells.

Note: Actual optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user as specimens, and experimental conditions may vary with the end user

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.
