Background: ICAM-4

ICAM-4 (intercellular adhesion molecule-4), also known as CD242, is a transmembrane cell adhesion glycoprotein and a member of the immunoglobulin protein superfamily. The ICAM sub-family consists of five members, ICAM-1 through ICAM-5, and they vary in their tissue expression and number of Ig-like domains in the extracellular domain (ECD) (1). Full-length human ICAM-4 contains 2 Ig-like domains in the ECD, a single transmembrane domain and short intracellular domain. Alternative splicing of ICAM-4 results in at least one soluble form (2). The ECD of mature human ICAM-4 shares 68% and 67% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat ICAM-4, respectively. ICAM-4 expression is limited to erythroid and possibly placental tissue but its biological role remains poorly defined (3). ICAM-4 has been shown to bind alpha4 beta1 and alphaV family integrins as well as displaying broad ligand binding specificity for some beta1, beta2, beta3 and beta5 integrins (4, 5). ICAM-4 binding to endothelial alphav beta3 has been indicated as a factor in vaso-occlusion, particularly in sickle cell disease (6). ICAM-4 is expressed on red blood cells (RBC), erythroid precursor cells, and possibly placental tissue (3, 7). ICAM-4 has shown to bind alpha4 beta1 on hemopoietic cells, alphaV family integrins (avb1, avb3, and avb5) on non-hemopoietic cells as well as displaying broad ligand binding specificity for some beta1, beta2, beta3 and beta5 integrins (4, 5, 7). Studies have shown aLb2 integrin interacts through the first Ig-like domain of ICAM-4, whereas aMb2 and aXb2 integrins interact through both Ig-like domains of ICAM-4 (7). In addition, initiation of vaso-occlusion in sickle cell disease is implicated by ICAM-4 binding to endothelial alphav beta3 integrin (6). The ability of ICAM-4 to interact selectively with different integrins suggests its importance in RBC physiology and pathology as well as its therapeutic value.
