I'm not sure if these are conformationally dependent but you might ask
one of the authors.

AB   Vascular cell adhesion mol.-1 (VCAM-1) is a member of the Ig (Ig)
     superfamily which interacts with the integrin very late antigen 4
     (VLA-4).  The cDNAs for both murine and rat VCAM-1 were cloned from
     endotoxin-treated lung libraries.  Both sequences encode proteins
     with seven extracellular Ig-like domains, which show 75.9% and 76.9%
     identity, resp., with human VCAM-1.  Both murine and human cell lines
     show VLA-4-dependent binding to COS cells transiently expressing
     murine and rat VCAM-1.  Two mAbs, M-K/1 and M-K/2, which recognize an
     antigen on murine bone marrow stromal cell lines, bind to murine
     VCAM-1 expressed in COS cells and block VCAM-1-dependent adhesion,
     confirming that these mAbs recognize murine VCAM-1.
