Mouse MADCAM-1 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Mouse MADCAM-1 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of mouse MADCAM-1 in cell culture supernates and serum.
MADCAM1(Mucosal Vascular Addressin Cell Adhesion Molecule 1), also known as MACAM1, is a protein that is encoded by the MADCAM1 gene. By PCR-based analysis of somatic cell hybrids, Leung et al(1997) mapped the MACAM1 gene to chromosome 19. The protein encoded by this gene is an endothelil cell adhesion molecule that interacts preferentially with the leukocyte beta7 integrin LPAM-1(alpha4 / beta7), L-selectin, and VLA-4(alpha4/beta1) on myeloid cells to direct leukocytes into mucosal and inflamed tissues. It is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily and is similar to ICAM-1 and VCAM-1.
