AMICA1 an adhesion molecule that may function in the migration of leukocytes through epithelial and endothelial tissues. Expressed at the plasma membrane of polymorphonuclear leukocytes, it mediates adhesive interactions with CXADR, a protein of the junctional complex of epithelial cells. Enhances myeloid leukemia cell adhesion to endothelial cells. Up-regulated upon retinoic acid, Me2SO and PMA treatment in differentiating myeloid leukemia cells. Three alternatively spliced isoforms have been described. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
