Detection of CD11c in Mouse Splenocytes by Flow Cytometry. Mouse splenocytes were stained with Rat Anti-Mouse MHC class II (I‑A/I‑E) APC‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB6118A) and either (A) Hamster Anti-Mouse CD11c PE‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB69501P) or (B) Hamster IgG Phycoerythrin Control.

Integrin alpha X subunit, also known as CD11c, is a 150 kDa type I
transmembrane protein that noncovalently heterodimerizes with the beta 2
subunit (CD18) to form alpha X/ beta 2, also known as p150/p95 and complement
receptor type 4 (CR4). Integrin alpha X beta 2 is expressed on macrophages,
dendritic cells, hairy cell leukemias and some other leukocyte subsets.
The 1097 aa mouse alpha X extracellular domain shares 71% and 87% amino acid
(aa) identity with human and rat alpha X, respectively. One potential alpha X
isoform is truncated at aa 828. Some adhesion partners of alpha X beta 2 are
shared with alpha M beta 2/CD11b/CD18 (complement iC3b, ICAMs, vWF and fibrinogen)
while others (osteopontin, Thy-1, plasminogen, heparin) are unique.
Unlike alpha M beta 2, it is not constitutively active. alpha X beta 2 adhesion mediates
proliferation, degranulation, chemotactic migration, and phagocytosis of
