Related Product Information for
anti-ITGA8 antibody
Integrin alpha8 is a 170-200kD member of the integrin family of adhesion molecules. It forms an exclusive noncovalent heterodimer with integrin beta-1. Alpha-8/beta-1 romotes both cell adhesion and survival and is known to bind to fibronectin, the latency-associated peptide in latent TGF-beta 1 and nephronectin. Mouse integrin alpha-8 is a 1025aa type I transmembrane glycoprotein. It contains a 969aa extracellular region (aa38-1006) and a 29aa cytoplasmic domain. One isoform may exist that shows a truncation after Ala675 of the precursor. In the ECD, mouse Integrin alpha8 shares 96% and 90% aa sequence identity with rat and human Integrin alpha-8 protein, respectively.

NCBI Summary for ITGA8
Integrins are heterodimeric transmembrane receptor proteins that mediate numerous cellular processes including cell adhesion, cytoskeletal rearrangement, and activation of cell signaling pathways. Integrins are composed of alpha and beta subunits. This gene encodes the alpha 8 subunit of the heterodimeric integrin alpha8beta1 protein. The encoded protein is a single-pass type 1 membrane protein that contains multiple FG-GAP repeats. This repeat is predicted to fold into a beta propeller structure. This gene regulates the recruitment of mesenchymal cells into epithelial structures, mediates cell-cell interactions, and regulates neurite outgrowth of sensory and motor neurons. The integrin alpha8beta1 protein thus plays an important role in wound-healing and organogenesis. Mutations in this gene have been associated with renal hypodysplasia/aplasia-1 (RHDA1) and with several animal models of chronic kidney disease. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2014]
UniProt Comments for ITGA8
ITGA8: Integrin alpha-8/beta-1 functions in the genesis of kidney and probably of other organs by regulating the recruitment of mesenchymal cells into epithelial structures. It recognizes the sequence R-G-D in a wide array of ligands including TNC, FN1, SPP1 TGFB1, TGFB3 and VTN. NPNT is probably its functional ligand in kidney genesis. Neuronal receptor for TNC it mediates cell-cell interactions and regulates neurite outgrowth of sensory and motor neurons. Belongs to the integrin alpha chain family.
