  Domain Name: Ig2_VCAM-1
Second immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domain of vascular endothelial cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1, CD106) and intercellular cell adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1, CD54) and similar proteins. Ig2_ VCAM-1_like: domain similar to the second immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domain of vascular endothelial cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1, CD106). During the inflammation process, these molecules recruit leukocytes onto the vascular endothelium before extravasation to the injured tissues. The interaction of VCAM-1 binding to the beta1 integrin very late antigen (VLA-4) expressed by lymphocytes and monocytes mediates the adhesion of leucocytes to blood vessel walls, and regulates migration across the endothelium. During metastasis, some circulating cancer cells extravasate to a secondary site by a similar process. VCAM-1 may be involved in organ targeted tumor metastasis and may also act as host receptors for viruses and parasites. VCAM-1 contains seven Ig domains.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
