Entrez Gene Summary for ITGB6 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that is a member of the integrin superfamily. Members of this family are adhesion receptors that function in signaling from the extracellular matrix to the cell. Integrins are heterodimeric integral membrane proteins composed of an alpha chain and a beta chain. The encoded protein forms a dimer with an alpha v chain and this heterodimer can bind to ligands like fibronectin and transforming growth factor beta 1. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2013]

GeneCards Summary for ITGB6 Gene

ITGB6 (Integrin, Beta 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ITGB6 include amelogenesis imperfecta, type ih and hypocalcified amelogenesis imperfecta. Among its related pathways are PI3K-Akt signaling pathway and Regulation of actin cytoskeleton. GO annotations related to this gene include integrin binding and virus receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is ITGB4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ITGB6 Gene

  • Integrin alpha-V/beta-6 is a receptor for fibronectin and cytotactin. It recognizes the sequence R-G-D in its ligands. Internalisation of integrin alpha-V/beta-6 via clathrin-mediated endocytosis promotes carcinoma cell invasion.
