    at STAGE
  • a N terminal signal peptide,with large extracellular domain consisting of a sevenfold repeated structure (FG-GAP)
  • an I domain, expressed in muscle tissue, with a metal ion-dependent adhesion site motif
  • putative cation-binding motifs in the three of four C terminal repeats
  • a single inserted between the second and third repeats ligand binding
  • a single transmembrane segment (1TM) and a short non conserved cytoplasmic domain
  • mono polymer heteromer , dimer

    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
  • is involved in the formation of myofibroblasts and fibroid development
  • may be involved in attaching muscle tissue to the extracellular matrix
  • decrease in ITGA11 is associated with its loss from focal adhesions
  • might be involved in fibrogenic signaling and might act downstream of the hedgehog signaling pathway
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell communication
    a component likely dimerizing with ITGB1
    small molecule
  • interferon stimulated gene
  • interactions between ITGA11s and the Smad-dependent TGFB2 signalling may contribute to the formation of pro-fibrotic myofibroblasts and the development of a fibrotic interstitium in diabetic cardiomyopathy
  • glycated collagen in the cardiac interstitium triggers an autocrine TGFB2 signaling pathway that stimulates ITGA expression through Smad2/3 binding elements in the ITGA promoter, which is important for myofibroblast formation and fibrosis
  • FGF2 may be redirecting fibroblasts towards an anti-fibrotic phenotype by overriding TGFB1 mediated ITGA11 expression
  • cell & other
    induced by TGFB1, inducing alpha11 transcription in the fibrosarcoma cell line HT1080 as well as in primary fibroblasts
