The protein encoded by human ICAM2 gene is a member of the intercellular adhesion molecule (ICAM) family. All ICAM proteins are type I transmembrane glycoproteins, contain 2-9 immunoglobulin-like C2-type domains, and bind to the leukocyte adhesion LFA-1 protein. This protein may play a role in lymphocyte recirculation by blocking LFA-1-dependent cell adhesion. It mediates adhesive interactions important for antigen-specific immune response, NK-cell mediated clearance, lymphocyte recirculation, and other cellular interactions important for immune response and surveillance. Several transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene.
Full-length extracellular domain of human ICAM2 gene (25-223 aa) was constructed with 29 N-terminal T7/His tag and expressed in E. coli as inclusion bodies.
The final product was refolded using a unique “temperature shift inclusion body refolding” technology and chromatographically purified.
