Integrins are cell adhesion molecules that can mediate bidirectional transfer of signals across the plasma membrane. The cytoplasmic domains of integrin family members interact with components of the signal transduction apparatus within cells. Integrin receptors contain noncovalently associated α and β subunits that consist of a large extracellular region (the ligand-binding domain), a short transmembrane region, and a cytoplasmic domain of varying length. In mammals, at least 17 α subunits and 8 β subunits have been identified and these proteins can heterodimerize to form at least 22 different receptors. The integrin β3 subunit associates with integrin α2 in platelets where this glycoprotein complex acts as a fibrinogen receptor and mediates platelet aggregation. In endothelial cells, integrin β3 complexes with the integrin αV subunit to form the vitronectin receptor. This receptor mediates endothelial cell adhesion to vitronectin, fibrinogen, von Willebrand factor, thrombospondin, laminin, and fibronectin.

Western blot analysis of human MDA-MB-231 (lane 1) and A431 (lane 2) cells. The blot was probed with mouse monoclonal anti-Integrin α2 (IM5831) at 1:1000 dilution.

Immunocytochemical labeling of Integrin α2 in aldehyde-fixed and NP-40-permeabilized human NCI-H1915 lung carcinoma cells. The cells were labeled with mouse monoclonal anti-Integrin α2 (IM5831) antibody. The antibody was detected using appropriate secondary antibody conjugated to DyLight® 594.

Clone M583 was generated from a recombinant protein containing amino acid residues in the extracellular region of human Integrin α2. This sequence has high homology with rat and mouse Integrin α2, and has low homology to other integrin family members.
