Detection of Rat ICAM‑1/CD54 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of rat liver tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Rat ICAM‑1/CD54 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB583) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for ICAM‑1/CD54 at approximately 90 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Intercellular Adhesion Molecule-1 (ICAM-1, CD54), binds the leukocyte integrins LFA-1 and Mac-1. ICAM-1 expression is weak on leukocytes, epithelial and resting endothelial cells, as well as some other cell types, but expression can be stimulated by IFN-gamma, TNF-alpha, IL-1 beta, and LPS. Rat and human ICAM-1 share approximately 52% amino acid identity. Rat and mouse ICAM-1 share approximately 52% amino acid identity.
Soluble ICAM-1 is found in a biologically active form in serum, probably as a result of proteolytic cleavage from the cell surface, and is elevated in patients with various inflammatory syndromes such as septic shock, leukocyte adhesion deficiency syndrome (LAD), cancer, and transplantation.
