|Specificity:||The antibody MEM-148 recognizes an epitope on CD18 which is essentially inaccessible in intact integrin molecules on resting leukocytes, but is exposed on high-affinity state of LFA-1 or on unassociated CD18. CD18 (integrin beta2 subunit; beta2 integrin) is a 90-95 kDa type I transmembrane protein expressed on all leukocytes.
HLDA VI; WS Code AS A052
|Immunogen:||Peripheral blood mononuclear cells|
Recommended dilution:8 μg/ml
The antibody MEM-148 is excellent marker of activated myeloid cells.
Application note: Non-reducing conditions.
The antibody MEM-148 induces homotypic cell aggregation and high-affinity LFA-1 conformation in resting leukocytes.

|Background:||CD18, integrin beta2 subunit, forms heterodimers with four types of CD11 molecule to constitute leukocyte (beta2) integrins: alphaLbeta2 (CD11a/CD18, LFA-1), alphaMbeta2 (CD11b/CD18, Mac-1, CR3), alphaXbeta2 (CD11c/CD18) and alphaDbeta2 (CD11d/CD18). In most cases, the response mediated by the integrin is a composite of the functions of its individual subunits. These integrins are essential for proper leukocyte migration, mediating intercellular contacts. Absence of CD18 leads to leukocyte adhesion deficiency-1; severe reduction of CD18 expression leads to the development of a psoriasiform skin disease. CD18 is also a target of Mannheimia (Pasteurella) haemolytica leukotoxin and is sufficient to mediate leukotoxin-mediated cytolysis.|
