Polyclonal Rabbit Serum E B IP IH IF RIA
Integrins are a family of dimeric, transmembrane proteins that mediate cell-cell and extracellular matrix adhesion. Signals transduced by integrins play a role in many biological processes, including cell growth, differentiation, migration and apoptosis. The integrin family is composed of at least 19 alpha and 8 beta subunits that form over twenty different alpha-beta non-covalently bound dimeric combinations on the cell surface. Both of the subunits contribute to the binding of the ligand. The alpha-3 subunit (CD49c) is highly concentrated in epithelial cells where it strongly adheres to Laminin-5 and Laminin-5 induced rapid adhesion can be blocked by antibodies against the alpha-3 integrin subunit.
