Vascular cell adhesion molecule-Ig fusion protein selectively targets activated alpha 4-integrin receptors in vivo. Inhibition of autoimmune diabetes in an adoptive transfer model in nonobese diabetic mice.


The alpha 4 beta 1-integrin (CD49d, CD29) constitutively expressed on leukocytes regulates cell migration to inflammatory sites, cell activation, and development through its interactions with two alternate ligands, vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1; CD106) expressed on cytokine-activated endothelium, dendritic and stromal cells, and the… (More)
