Detects mouse ICAM-2 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs, less than 5% cross-reactivity with recombinant human ICAM‑2 and recombinant rat ICAM-1 and less than 1% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse (rm) VCAM-1, rmICAM-5, and rmICAM-1 is observed.
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.
The adhesion of HSB2 human peripheral blood acute lymphoblastic leukemia cells (5 x 104 cells/well) to immobilized Recombinant Mouse ICAM-2/CD102 Fc Chimera (Catalog # 774-M2, 12.5 µg/mL, 100 µL/well) was maximally inhibited (80-100%) by 25 µg/mL of the antibody.
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
Detection of Mouse ICAM‑2/CD102 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of mouse lung tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.25 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Mouse ICAM‑2/CD102 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF774) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF109). Specific bands were detected for ICAM‑2/CD102 at approximately 50 to 60 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
ICAM‑2/CD102 in Mouse Ovary. ICAM‑2/CD102 was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse ovary using 15 µg/mL Goat Anti-Mouse ICAM‑2/CD102 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF774) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Intercellular Adhesion Molecule-2 (ICAM-2, also known as CD102), a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily, binds the leukocyte integrins LFA-1 (CD11a/CD18) and Mac-1 (CD11b/CD18). ICAM-2 is constitutively expressed at high levels on vascular endothelial cells and lymphohematopoietic cells. ICAM-2 mediated adhesion has been shown to provide a co-stimulatory signal for T cell aggregation, NK cytotoxicity and NK cell migration. The mouse and human ICAM-2 proteins share 60% amino acid identity. Human LFA-1 binds equally well to human or mouse ICAM-2.
