Molecular structure of
:Alpha-5 / Beta-1 integrin

Homo sapiens

Lecster ID:324 Edit Entry
Source Organism:
Species:Homo sapiens
Common Nomenclature:Alpha-5 / Beta-1 integrin
Class:Integrin A (or I) domain
Index Nomenclature:INTh.Xxx.Xxx.xx.Xxxx
Characterization Notes:Alpha5/beta1 is a receptor for fibronectin. It is expressed on Memory-T-cells, monocytes, platelets and fibroblasts. This integrin is also known as VLA-5 (very late activation antigen 5), FNR (fibronectin receptor), GPIc-IIa (glycoprotein Ic-IIa on platelets) and ECMRVI (extracellular matrix receptor VI). AlphaV/beta1 is a receptor for fibronectin. ntegrins alpha5beta1, alphavbeta1, and alphavbeta6 collaborate in squamous carcinoma cell spreading and migration on fibronectin.
