Detection of Human Integrin alpha L/CD11a by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC). PVDF Membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Human Integrin alpha L/CD11a Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB3595) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for Integrin alpha L/CD11a at approximately 150 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: Integrin alpha L/CD11a
Integrin subunit alpha L/CD11a is a 180 kDa type I TM glycoprotein that interacts only with Integrin beta 2/CD18 to form LFA-1, a leukocyte adhesion protein which binds endothelial cell ICAM. Human Integrin alpha L contains a 1064 aa extracellular domain (ECD), a 20 aa TM sequence and a 58 aa cytoplasmic domain. The ECD contains seven repeats that form a beta-propeller structure and one inserted vWA domain (I domain) containing a metal ion-dependent adhesion site (MIDAS). Human and mouse Integrin alpha L ECD share 74% aa identity. A second isoform has a 53 aa insert in the ECD.
