Integrin alpha 8 in 4T1 Mouse Cell Line.
Integrin alpha 8 was detected in immersion fixed 4T1 mouse breast cancer cell line using Goat Anti-Mouse Integrin alpha 8 Biotinylated Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # BAF4076) 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). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm and cell surface.

Background: Integrin alpha 8
Integrin alpha 8 is a 170-200 kDa member of the Integrin family of adhesion molecules. It forms an exclusive noncovalent heterodimer with Integrin beta 1. alpha 8 beta 1 promotes both cell adhesion and survival and is known to bind to fibronectin, the latency-associated peptide in latent TGF-beta 1 and nephronectin. Mouse Integrin alpha 8 is a 1025 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane glycoprotein. It contains a 969 aa extracellular region (aa 38-1006) and a 29 aa cytoplasmic domain. One isoform may exist that shows a truncation after Ala675 of the precursor. In the ECD, mouse Integrin alpha 8 shares 96% and 90% aa sequence identity with rat and human Integrin alpha 8 protein, respectively.
