NB100-63904 recognizes CD49F (VLA-6 alpha chain), a 120kD cell surface glycoprotein that can form distinct complexes with CD29 (VLA beta-chain), resulting in the VLA-6 (alpha-6 beta-1) complex, which is expressed on human platelets, or with the beta-4 integrin resulting in the alpha-6 beta-4 complex which is expressed on various human epithelial cells. Clone NKI-GoH3 reacts with platelets, megakaryocytes, T lymphocytes and common Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia cells (alpha-6 beta-1). In immunohistology the monoclonal antibody reacts with epithelial cells of a variety of tissues, peripheral nerves, microvascular endothelial cells, placenta cyto- and syncytotrophoblasts.VLA-6 is an important mediator of cell binding to laminin. Studies suggest that clone GoH3 specifically blocks the binding of cells to the E8 fragment of laminin (7).

Integrins are important extracellular matrix (ECM) receptor proteins located on cell surfaces. They are hetrodimers composed of an alpha and a beta transmembrane glycoprotein subunit. Around twenty two different integrins (different alpha/ beta subunit combinations) are found in nature. Integrins are generally present in high concentrations at the cell surface, but, unlike most other cell surface receptors, they bind ligands with very low affinity. Due to their weak individual binding, integrins need to cluster and bind in groups in order to effectively bind the ECM. Integrins bind many different ligands including laminin. Each integrin is made up of a large N terminal extracellular domain that binds the ECM ligand and a small C terminal cytoplasmic domain that mediates interaction with the actin cytoskeleton and signaling function. Integrin alpha 6 complexes are receptors for laminins, which are components of basement membranes. Integrin alpha 6 complexes may play an important role in embryogenesis.
