Recommended Assay Procedures

Functional Studies: ICAM-1 is a ligand for both the leukocyte function-associated antigen-1 (LFA-1) and Mac-1, and thereby mediates the adhesion of leukocytes to endothelial cells. Leukocyte binding to endothelial cells is a critical process in inflammatory responses such as rheumatoid arthritis, adult respiratory distress syndrome, chronic dematoses, and reperfusion myocardial injury. Anti-ICAM-1 monoclonal antibody (clone LB-2) inhibits phorbol ester-enhanced aggregation of EBV-B or lectin-activated normal blood mononuclear cells. Anti-ICAM-1 (clone LB-2) is specific for a functional epitope on ICAM-1 and inhibits LFA-1-ICAM-1 interactions.

Immunoprecipitation: Under reducing conditions, anti-ICAM-1 monoclonal antibody (clone LB-2) immunoprecipitates a glycoprotein from EBV-immortalized B lymphocytes (EBV-B) with a molecular mass of 84 kDa by gel electrophoresis, while under nonreducing conditions a molecular mass of 77 kDa was observed.

Immunohistology: Anti-ICAM-1 monoclonal antibody (clone LB-2) can be used for immunohistochemistry staining.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

The LB-2 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD54 which is also known as Intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1). CD54 is an 85-110 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to the immunoglobulin supergene family. A soluble form of CD54 can also be found in biological fluids. CD54 is expressed on endothelial cells and both resting (weak) and activated (moderate) T and B lymphocytes and monocytes. CD54 is expressed on human myeloma cells, Burkitt's lymphoma cells, erythroleukemia cells, and B-lymphoblastoid cells. CD54 is a ligand for LFA-1 (CD11a/CD18) and Mac-1 (CD11b/CD18) and can act as a receptor for Rhinoviruses. The CD54 adhesion molecule plays roles in inflammatory and immune responses and neoplasia.

Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
