Mutation analysis revealed that the C-terminal 21 amino acids are dispensable, whereas a segment of 5 amino acids () in the NH-terminal third of intracellular domain, is required for the proper localization and dynamic distribution of ICAM-1 and the association of ICAM-1 with F-actin, ezrin, and moesin.
Their project even bagged the third place at inno WAH!
