Intercellular adhesion molecule-2 (ICAM-2) which can also be referred to as CD102, is a 55 kD type I transmembrane glycoprotein that contains approx. 2-9 immunoglobulin-like C2-type domains and has the ability to bind leukocyte adhesion LFA-1 protein. ICAM-2 is known to be constitutively expressed on mainly vascular endothelial cells and some monocytes, lymphocytes and platelets. It is a counter receptor of MAC-1, LFA-1, CD11a/CD18 and DC-SIGN, where it is thought to be responsible for lymphocyte re-circulation and in the co-stimulation of immune response. It essentially can mediate adhesive interactions which are vital for antigen-specific lymphocyte recirculation, NK-cell mediated clearance, immune response and surveillance. ICAM-2 is also found to regulate spermatid adhesion on Sertori cells that are located on the apical side of the blood-testis barrier.
Human ICAM-2 ELISA kit is designed for determining in vitro quantitative concentrations of intercellular adhesion molecule-2 (CD102, ICAM-2) in human serum, plasma, cell culture supernatant, other biological fluids and cell lysates. This assay has a minimum sensitivity limit of 0.13 ng/ml.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of ICAM-2 or CD102 using this human ICAM-2 ELISA kit was 0.13 ng/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 0.2 – 60 ng/ml.
