Secondary Information

Protein Function ubiquitously expressed cell surface receptors that play a critical role in regulating the interaction between a cell and its microenvironment to control cell fate; integrins can influence a wide variety of cellular phenotypes, including adhesion, migration, proliferation, survival, differentiation, mechano-sensing and cytoskeletal organisation, thereby implicating integrins in processes such as tissue development and repair, angiogenesis, immune response and haemostasis; deregulation of integrin signalling is associated with various pathological processes, including autoimmunity, inflammation and cancer
Biochemical Properties integrin family contains 18 α- and eight β-subunits that bind noncovalently to form 24 distinct αβ integrin heterodimers with each β subunit binding several α- subunits. The α- and β-subunits are both type I transmembrane receptors and share structural similarities, such as a large extracellular domain, a single transmembrane domain and a cytoplasmic tail; α subunit contains a metal ion-dependent adhesion site; Integrin α-subunits containing this inserted αI domain are the collagen receptors (α1, α2, α10 and α11) and the leukocyte receptors; these receptors pair predominantly with β1 and are required for tissue integrity in organs such as muscle, kidney and skin ; α-subunits form heterodimers with β1 and β3 subunits and bind ECM ligands; βI domain contains two other metal ion-binding sites called the adjacent metal ion-dependent adhesion site and the synergistic metal ion-binding site; β-subunit stalk/leg section that contains four cysteine-rich integrin epidermal growth factor-like (IEGF) modules; β-tails are more highly conserved that the α-tails and are the primary moderator of intracellular ligand interactions; ß contain a phosphotyrosine-binding (PTB) domain - important for binding multiple integrin adaptor proteins;
