CD54, M.W. 90,000, antigen is the Intercellular Adhesion Molecule-1 (ICAM-1) and is the ligand for LFA-1 mediated adhesion. CD54 is weakly expressed on peripheral blood leukocytes. Upon activation the antigen is expressed strongly on B cells, T cells, macrophages and granulocytes. ICAM-1 is also inducible on endothelial cells, epithelial cells and fibroblasts.


CD54=Derived from the hybridization of mouse NS-1 myeloma cells with spleen cells from BALB/c mice immunized with the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II-negative human b-lymphoblastoid cell line 6.16c13


Provided as solution in phosphate buffered saline with 0.08% sodium azide
