CD11b/Integrin alpha M in Mouse Splenocytes. CD11b/Integrin alpha M was detected in immersion fixed mouse splenocytes using Rat Anti-Mouse CD11b/Integrin alpha M Biotinylated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # BAM1124) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Streptavidin (red; Catalog # NL999) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

Background: CD11b/Integrin alpha M
The Integrin family proteins are heterodimeric transmembrane receptors composed of an alpha and a beta subunit. The Integrin alpha M subunit, also known as MAC-1 alpha subunit or CD11b, combines with the Integrin beta 2 subunit (CD18) to form the non-covalent heterodimer Integrin alpha M/ beta 2, also known as MAC-1 and complement receptor type 3 (CR3). Integrin alpha M/ beta 2 is expressed on granulocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells and natural killer cells. Upon activation, alpha M/ beta 2 can bind several ligands (including ICAM-1, fibrinogen, and the C3 complement fragment, C3bi) to mediate phagocyte adhesion, migration and ingestion of complement-opsonized particles.
