Summaries for ITGAX Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ITGAX Gene

  • This gene encodes the integrin alpha X chain protein. Integrins are heterodimeric integral membrane proteins composed of an alpha chain and a beta chain. This protein combines with the beta 2 chain (ITGB2) to form a leukocyte-specific integrin referred to as inactivated-C3b (iC3b) receptor 4 (CR4). The alpha X beta 2 complex seems to overlap the properties of the alpha M beta 2 integrin in the adherence of neutrophils and monocytes to stimulated endothelium cells, and in the phagocytosis of complement coated particles. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2013]

GeneCards Summary for ITGAX Gene

ITGAX (Integrin, Alpha X (Complement Component 3 Receptor 4 Subunit)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ITGAX include benign cephalic histiocytosis and sporotrichosis. Among its related pathways are Regulation of actin cytoskeleton and TGF-Beta Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is ITGA8.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ITGAX Gene

  • Integrin alpha-X/beta-2 is a receptor for fibrinogen. It recognizes the sequence G-P-R in fibrinogen. It mediates cell-cell interaction during inflammatory responses. It is especially important in monocyte adhesion and chemotaxis
