Human CD29 is the beta subunit of an integrin family of molecules expressed on diverse cell types which function as the major receptors for extracellular matrix and as cell-cell adhesion molecules. CD29 can form heterodimer pairs with at least nine different alpha subunits (1).
Isotype: Murine IgG1kappa
Immunogen: Human ocular melanoma cell line, V+B2
Specificity: Antibody 4B7R recognizes the CD29 integrin subunit. It has been reported to work in Western blot under non reducing conditions at a concentration of 1-2 μg/ml. It has also been reported to cross react with Porcine and Mouse CD29.
