HGNC name integrin, alpha X (complement component 3 receptor 4 subunit)
HGNC id 6152
PROTEIN
PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
STRUCTURE
motifs/domains
  • a N terminal large extracellular domain with a sevenfold repeated structure
  • putative cation-binding motifs in the three of four C terminal repeats
  • an I domain (UWF type A domain) inserted between the second and third repeats ligand binding, connected by a single transmembrane segment (1TM) to a short conserved cytoplasmic domain
  • mono polymer heteromer , dimer
    HOMOLOGY
    Homologene
    FAMILY
  • integrin alpha chain family
  • CATEGORY adhesion , antigen , receptor
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     plasma membrane
    basic FUNCTION
  • cell surface adhesion receptor mediating cell-adhesion to extra cellular matrix or to other cells, through hetero dimerization and connecting to the cytoskeleton and various signaling molecules within cells
  • beta(2)-integrin that plays an important role in T-cell accumulation and activation in adipose tissue, and contributes to insulin resistance associated with obesity (Wu 2010)
  • differential involvement of ITGAX and ITGAM in adhesion and subsequent cytoskeletal changes in monocytes exposed to different conditions indicates the importance of each integrin in distinct responses during inflammation (Georgakopoulos 2008)
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell communication
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS immunity/defense
    text phagocytosis
    PATHWAY
