Summaries for ITGB5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ITGB5 Gene

  • This gene encodes a beta subunit of integrin, which can combine with different alpha chains to form a variety of integrin heterodimers. Integrins are integral cell-surface receptors that participate in cell adhesion as well as cell-surface mediated signaling. The alphav beta5 integrin is involved in adhesion to vitronectin. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2017]

GeneCards Summary for ITGB5 Gene

ITGB5 (Integrin Subunit Beta 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ITGB5 include Villous Adenocarcinoma and Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy. Among its related pathways are ERK Signaling and Focal Adhesion. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include integrin binding. An important paralog of this gene is ITGB3.
