Detects mouse Integrin alpha 2/CD49b in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs and Western blots, approximately 10% cross‑reactivity with recombinant human Integrin alpha M is observed and less than 1% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse (rm) Integrin alpha 5 and rmIntegrin alpha E is observed.
Detection of Integrin alpha 2/CD49b in Mouse Splenocytes by Flow Cytometry. Mouse splenocytes were stained with Mouse Anti-Mouse CD161/NK1.1 PE‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB8319P) and either (A) Sheep Anti-Mouse Integrin alpha 2/CD49b Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1740) or (B) Normal Sheep IgG Control (Catalog # 5-001-A) followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0127).
Integrin alpha 2/CD49b in Mouse Splenocytes. Integrin alpha 2/CD49b was detected in immersion fixed mouse splenocytes using Sheep Anti-Mouse Integrin alpha 2/CD49b Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1740) at 15 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL010) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cell surfaces. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Non-adherent Cells.

Background: Integrin alpha 2/CD49b
The Integrin family proteins are heterodimeric transmembrane receptors comprised of an alpha and a beta subunit. The Integrin alpha 2 subunit is expressed in monocytes, platelets, B, T and NK cells. It forms a non-covalent heterodimer with the Integrin beta 1 subunit. Integrin alpha 2/ beta 1 binds collagen and laminin and activates intracellular signaling pathways.
