Intercellular adhesion molecule-3 (ICAM-3) which can also been called CD50 is a member of the ICAM family and it functions both as an adhesion and a potent signalling molecule. This protein is abundantly and constitutively expressed by all leukocytes, there is also evidence to indicate that it may be a vital ligand for initiating immune response for LFA-1 molecules. It is made up of type I transmembrane glycoproteins, consisting of 2-9 immunoglobulin-like C2-type domains and also has the ability to bind to the leukocyte adhesion LFA-1 protein. Alternative splicing is known to lead to multiple transcript variants being produced which are encoding different isoforms. ICAM-3 can bind to leukocyte adhesion LFA-1 protein (CD18/CD11a) and this can help to facilitate cell-cell interactions which need to happen in the immune system.
Human ICAM-3 ELISA kit is intended for measuring in vitro quantitative amounts of intercellular adhesion molecule-3 (CD50, ICAM-3) in human cell lysates, plasma, serum, biological fluids and cell culture supernatant. This assay has a minimum sensitivity limit of 0.4 ng/ml.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of ICAM-3 or CD50 using this human ICAM-3 ELISA kit was 0.4 ng/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 0.781 – 50 ng/ml.
