Each family contains a common beta-subunit (INTEGRIN BETA CHAINS) combined with one or more distinct alpha-subunits (INTEGRIN ALPHA CHAINS). These receptors participate in cell-matrix and cell-cell adhesion in many physiologically important processes, including embryological development; HEMOSTASIS; THROMBOSIS; WOUND HEALING; immune and nonimmune defense mechanisms; and oncogenic transformation.

The LIM-only protein PINCH directly interacts with integrin-linked kinase and is recruited to integrin-rich sites in spreading cells. (2/5403)

PINCH is a widely expressed and evolutionarily conserved protein comprising primarily five LIM domains, which are cysteine-rich consensus sequences implicated in mediating protein-protein interactions. We report here that PINCH is a binding protein for integrin-linked kinase (ILK), an intracellular serine/threonine protein kinase that plays important roles in the cell adhesion, growth factor, and Wnt signaling pathways. The interaction between ILK and PINCH has been consistently observed under a variety of experimental conditions. They have interacted in yeast two-hybrid assays, in solution, and in solid-phase-based binding assays. Furthermore, ILK, but not vinculin or focal adhesion kinase, has been coisolated with PINCH from mammalian cells by immunoaffinity chromatography, indicating that PINCH and ILK associate with each other in vivo. The PINCH-ILK interaction is mediated by the N-terminal-most LIM domain (LIM1, residues 1 to 70) of PINCH and multiple ankyrin (ANK) repeats located within the N-terminal domain (residues 1 to 163) of ILK. Additionally, biochemical studies indicate that ILK, through the interaction with PINCH, is capable of forming a ternary complex with Nck-2, an SH2/SH3-containing adapter protein implicated in growth factor receptor kinase and small GTPase signaling pathways. Finally, we have found that PINCH is concentrated in peripheral ruffles of cells spreading on fibronectin and have detected clusters of PINCH that are colocalized with the alpha5beta1 integrins. These results demonstrate a specific protein recognition mechanism utilizing a specific LIM domain and multiple ANK repeats and suggest that PINCH functions as an adapter protein connecting ILK and the integrins with components of growth factor receptor kinase and small GTPase signaling pathways.  (+info)

Blocking very late antigen-4 integrin decreases leukocyte entry and fatty streak formation in mice fed an atherogenic diet. (3/5403)

Atherosclerotic lesion development is characterized by the recruitment of leukocytes, principally monocytes, to the vessel wall. Considerable interest has been focused on the adhesion molecule(s) involved in leukocyte/endothelial interactions. The goal of the present study was to determine the role of the very late antigen-4 (VLA-4) integrin/ligand interaction in fatty streak development using murine models. Because alpha4 null mice are not viable, a peptidomimetic was used to block VLA-4-mediated leukocyte binding. The ability of a synthetic peptidomimetic of connecting segment-1 (CS-1 peptide) to block the recruitment of leukocytes and the accumulation of lipid in the aortic sinus of either wild-type mice (strain C57BL/6J) or mice with a low-density lipoprotein null mutation (LDLR-/-) maintained on an atherogenic diet was assessed. The active (Ac) CS-1 peptide or scrambled (Sc) CS-1 peptide was delivered subcutaneously into mice using a mini osmotic pump. Mice were exposed to the peptide for 24 to 36 hours before the onset of the atherogenic diet. In C57BL/6J mice, leukocyte entry into the aortic sinus, as assessed by en face preparations, was inhibited by the active peptide (Ac=28+/-4, Sc=54+/-6 monocytes/valve; P=0.004). Additionally, frozen sections stained with Oil Red O were analyzed to assess lipid accumulation in the aortic sinus. C57BL/6J mice that received the (Ac) compound demonstrated significantly reduced lesion areas as compared with mice that received the (Sc) peptide (Ac=4887+/-4438 microm2, Sc=15 009 +/-5619 microm2; P<0.0001). In a separate study, LDLR-/- mice were implanted with pumps containing either the (Ac) or (Sc) peptide before initiation of the atherogenic diet. Because LDLR-/- mice fed a chow diet displayed small lesions at 14 weeks, the effects of the peptide seen in these animals represented a change in early lipid accumulation rather than initiation. By using whole-mount preparations, the (Ac) but not the (Sc) peptide significantly reduced the area of lipid accumulation in the aortic sinus, resulting in an approximate 66% decrease. Plasma analysis from all studies revealed concentrations of peptide to be present at levels previously determined by in vitro analysis to block adhesion. (Ac) CS-1 peptide, which blocks VLA-4 on the leukocyte surface, is effective in reducing leukocyte recruitment and lipid accumulation in the aortic sinus. The present study provides in vivo evidence that the VLA-4 integrin plays an important role in the initiation of the atherosclerotic lesion and lipid accumulation, and it suggests a potential therapeutic strategy for this disease.  (+info)

Integrin subunit gene expression is regionally differentiated in adult brain. (4/5403)

Integrins are a diverse family of heterodimeric (alphabeta) adhesion receptors recently shown to be concentrated within synapses and involved in the consolidation of long-term potentiation. Whether neuronal types or anatomical systems in the adult rat brain are coded by integrin type was studied in the present experiments by mapping the relative densities of mRNAs for nine alpha and four beta subunits. Expression patterns were markedly different and in some regions complementary. General results and areas of notable labeling were as follows: alpha1-limited neuronal expression, neocortical layer V, hippocampal CA3; alpha3 and alpha5-diffuse neuronal and glial labeling, Purkinje cells, hippocampal stratum pyramidale, locus coeruleus (alpha3); alpha4- discrete limbic regions, olfactory cortical layer II, hippocampal CA2; alpha6-most prominently neuronal, neocortical subplate, endopiriform, subiculum; alpha7-discrete, all neocortical layers, hippocampal granule cells and CA3, cerebellar granule and Purkinje cells, all efferent cranial nerve nuclei; alpha8-discrete neuronal, deep cortex, hippocampal CA1, basolateral amygdala, striatum; alphaV-all cortical layers, striatum, Purkinje cells; beta4-dentate gyrus granule cells; beta5-broadly distributed, neocortex, medial amygdala, cerebellar granule and Purkinje cells, efferent cranial nerve nuclei; alpha2, beta2, and beta3-mRNAs not detected. These results establish that brain subfields express different balances of integrin subunits and thus different integrin receptors. Such variations will determine which matrix proteins are recognized by neurons and the types of intraneuronal signaling generated by matrix binding. They also could generate important differences in synaptic plasticity across brain systems.  (+info)

The integrin alpha v beta 6 binds and activates latent TGF beta 1: a mechanism for regulating pulmonary inflammation and fibrosis. (5/5403)

Transforming growth factor beta (TGF beta) family members are secreted in inactive complexes with a latency-associated peptide (LAP), a protein derived from the N-terminal region of the TGF beta gene product. Extracellular activation of these complexes is a critical but incompletely understood step in regulation of TGF beta function in vivo. We show that TGF beta 1 LAP is a ligand for the integrin alpha v beta 6 and that alpha v beta 6-expressing cells induce spatially restricted activation of TGF beta 1. This finding explains why mice lacking this integrin develop exaggerated inflammation and, as we show, are protected from pulmonary fibrosis. These data identify a novel mechanism for locally regulating TGF beta 1 function in vivo by regulating expression of the alpha v beta 6 integrin.  (+info)

Cell adhesion regulates the interaction between the docking protein p130(Cas) and the 14-3-3 proteins. (6/5403)

Integrin ligand binding induces a signaling complex formation via the direct association of the docking protein p130(Cas) (Cas) with diverse molecules. We report here that the 14-3-3zeta protein interacts with Cas in the yeast two-hybrid assay. We also found that the two proteins associate in mammalian cells and that this interaction takes place in a phosphoserine-dependent manner, because treatment of Cas with a serine phosphatase greatly reduced its ability to bind 14-3-3zeta. Furthermore, the Cas-14-3-3zeta interaction was found to be regulated by integrin-mediated cell adhesion. Thus, when cells are detached from the extracellular matrix, the binding of Cas to 14-3-3zeta is greatly diminished, whereas replating the cells onto fibronectin rapidly induces the association. Consistent with these results, we found that the subcellular localization of Cas and 14-3-3 is also regulated by integrin ligand binding and that the two proteins display a significant co-localization during cell attachment to the extracellular matrix. In conclusion, our results demonstrate that 14-3-3 proteins participate in integrin-activated signaling pathways through their interaction with Cas, which, in turn, may contribute to important biological responses regulated by cell adhesion to the extracellular matrix.  (+info)

Tyrosine phosphorylation of SLP-76 is downstream of Syk following stimulation of the collagen receptor in platelets. (7/5403)

Collagen-related peptide (CRP), a collagen homologue, induces platelet activation through a tyrosine kinase-dependent pathway, leading to sequential tyrosine phosphorylation of Fc receptor (FcR) gamma-chain, Syk, and phospholipase C-gamma2. Here we report that CRP and the platelet low affinity immune receptor FcgammaRIIA stimulate tyrosine phosphorylation of the T cell adapter SLP-76, whereas the G protein-coupled receptor agonist thrombin induces only minor tyrosine phosphorylation. This suggests that SLP-76 has a specific role downstream of receptors that signal via an immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motif. Immunoprecipitation studies demonstrate association of SLP-76 with SLAP-130, Vav, Fyn, Lyn, and the FcR gamma-chain in CRP-stimulated platelets. Several of these proteins, including SLP-76, undergo tyrosine phosphorylation in in vitro kinase assays performed on SLP-76 immunoprecipitates. Tyrosine phosphorylation of all of these proteins in the in vitro kinase assay was abrogated by the Src family kinase inhibitor PP1, suggesting that it is mediated by either Fyn or Lyn. The physiological significance of this is uncertain, however, since tyrosine phosphorylation of SLP-76 in vivo is not altered in either Fyn- or Lyn-deficient platelets. CRP stimulation of Syk-deficient platelets demonstrated that in vivo tyrosine phosphorylation of SLP-76 is downstream of Syk. The absence of Syk in the SLP-76 immunoprecipitates raises the possibility that another protein is responsible for bringing SLP-76 to Syk. Candidates for this include those proteins that co-immunoprecipitate with SLP-76, including the FcR gamma-chain. Tyrosine phosphorylation of PLC-gamma2 and Ca2+ mobilization is markedly attenuated in SLP-76-deficient platelets following CRP stimulation, suggesting that the adapter plays a critical role in the regulation of the phospholipase. The increase in tyrosine phosphorylation of SLAP-130 in response to CRP is also inhibited in SLP-76-deficient platelets, placing it downstream of SLP-76. This work identifies SLP-76 as an important adapter molecule that is regulated by Syk and lies upstream of SLAP-130 and PLC-gamma2 in CRP-stimulated platelets.  (+info)

Expression pattern of integrin adhesion molecules in endometriosis and human endometrium. (8/5403)

Integrins are cell adhesion molecules that undergo cell-specific dynamic changes during the normal menstrual cycle in the human endometrium. Here, using immunohistochemistry, we have investigated the expression pattern of the integrins alphav, alpha2beta1, alpha3beta1, alpha3, alpha6, beta1, beta2 and beta3 in the human ectopic endometrium of 30 patients and in nine cases in the corresponding eutopic endometrium. The biopsies were obtained during the early or late follicular phase (25 cases), during the corpus luteum phase (four cases) and in one case after 6 months' treatment with a gonadotrophin releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist. The integrin expression was independent of the ovarian steroid situation at the time of biopsy. The integrin alpha6 was expressed in all endometriotic and endometrium samples. The integrin alpha3 was absent in all endometrium tissues of patients with endometriosis. However, the corresponding endometriotic lesions re-expressed this adhesion molecule in 15 cases. No change in integrin beta3 expression pattern could be demonstrated in either endometriotic lesions or endometrium samples, regardless of the menstrual cycle phase. A correlation between serum oestradiol and progesterone concentrations and the expression of the investigated integrins was not observed, thus indicating that these two hormones play a minor role in the regulation of the cell adhesion molecules examined. Our investigation suggests that endometriosis is a dedifferentiated disease as it expressed different integrins in comparison with the eutopic endometrium, and independently of the hormonal situation. The ability of endometriotic tissues to express integrins may explain the high recurrence rates in patients with endometriosis, as these samples retain their adhesion potency after retrograde menstruation and are thus able to establish cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions with the surrounding peritoneum.  (+info)

ITAGV encodes integrin alpha chain V. Integrins are heterodimeric integral membrane proteins composed of an alpha chain and a beta chain. The I-domain containing integrin alpha V undergoes post-translational cleavage to yield disulfide-linked heavy and light chains, that combine with multiple integrin beta chains to form different integrins. Among the known associating beta chains (beta chains 1,3,5,6, and 8; ITGB1, ITGB3, ITGB5, ITGB6, and ITGB8), each can interact with extracellular matrix ligands; the alpha V beta 3 integrin, perhaps the most studied of these, is referred to as the Vitronectin receptor (VNR). In addition to adhesion, many integrins are known to facilitate signal transduction. The ITGB3 protein product is the integrin beta chain beta 3. Integrins are integral cell-surface proteins composed of an alpha chain and a beta chain. A given chain may combine with multiple partners resulting in different integrins. Integrin beta 3 is found along with the alpha IIb chain in ...
Leukocyte adhesion during hypoxia is mediated by HIF-1-dependent induction of beta2 integrin gene expression.s profile, publications, research topics, and co-authors
Integrin receptors regulate cell fate by coupling the binding of extracellular adhesion proteins to the assembly of intracellular cytoskeletal and signaling complexes. A detailed, integrative view of adhesion complexes will provide insight into the molecular mechanisms that control cell morphology, survival, movement, and differentiation. To date, membrane receptor-associated signaling complexes have been refractory to proteomic analysis because of their inherent lability and inaccessibility. We developed a methodology to isolate ligand-induced integrin adhesion complexes, and we used this technique to analyze the composition of complexes associated with multiple receptor-ligand pairs and define core and receptor-specific subnetworks. In particular, we identified regulator of chromosome condensation-2 (RCC2) as a component of fibronectin-activated signaling pathways that regulate directional cell movement. The development of this proteomics pipeline provides the means to investigate the ...

N2 - Integrins are the major family of cell surface receptors that mediate adhesion to the extracellular matrix and sometimes cell-cell adhesive interactions. These integrin-mediated adhesive interactions are involved in the regulation of many cellular functions, including embryonic development, tumor cell growth and metastasis, programmed cell death, hemostasis, inflammation, immune reaction, bone reabsorption, etc. Integrins are composed of alpha and beta transmembrane subunits selected from among 16 alpha and 8 beta subunits that heterodimerize to produce more than 20 different receptors which bind specific ligands. Ligand binding sites have been clarified by chimera integrin protein in some integrins. Integrins link to intracellular cytoskeletal complexes and bundles of actin filaments.

Adhesion of cells to extracellular matrix proteins is mediated, in large part, by transmembrane receptors of the integrin family. The identification of specific integrins expressed in early embryos is an important first step to understanding the roles of these receptors in developmental processes. We have used polymerase chain reaction methods and degenerate oligodeoxynucleotide primers to identify and clone Xenopus integrin alpha subunits from neurula-stage (stage 17) cDNA. Partial cDNAs encoding integrin subunits alpha 2, alpha 3, alpha 4, alpha 5, alpha 6 and an alpha IIb-related subunit were cloned and used to investigate integrin mRNA expression in early embryos by RNase protection assay and whole-mount in situ hybridization methods. Considerable integrin diversity is apparent early in development with integrins alpha 2, alpha 3, alpha 4, alpha 5 and alpha 6 each expressed by the end of gastrulation. Both alpha 3 and alpha 5 are expressed as maternal mRNAs. Zygotic expression of alpha 2, ...
alpha 4 integrins are cell surface receptors that mediate cell-extracellular matrix (ECM) and cell-cell adhesions by interacting with fibronectin (FN) and vascular cell adhesion molecule 1 (VCAM-1), respectively. We have generated a null mutation in the gene for the alpha 4 integrin subunit. Homozygous null embryos express no alpha 4 integrins and show two unexpected defects, both of which lead to embryonic lethality. The first defect is failure of fusion of the allantois with the chorion during placentation. The second is in the development of the epicardium and coronary vessels leading to cardiac hemorrhage. Both processes clearly involve alpha 4 integrin interactions that were previously unsuspected. alpha 4 integrin and VCAM-1 are expressed at the sites of these interactions. These results raise the possibility of abortifacients targeting alpha 4 integrins, and raise serious questions about potential side effects of drugs currently being designed to block alpha 4 integrin functions in ...
The product of this gene belongs to the integrin alpha chain family. Integrins are heterodimeric integral membrane proteins composed of an alpha subunit and a beta subunit that function in cell surface adhesion and signaling. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate light and heavy chains that comprise the alpha 5 subunit. This subunit associates with the beta 1 subunit to form a fibronectin receptor. This integrin may promote tumor invasion, and higher expression of this gene may be correlated with shorter survival time in lung cancer patients. Note that the integrin alpha 5 and integrin alpha V subunits are encoded by distinct genes. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2015 ...

Integrins are cell adhesion receptors which mediate interactions between the extracellular matrix and the actin cytoskeleton. They are heterodimers composed of α and β subunits. As adhesion receptors, integrins are important for cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions and therefore are essential for the structural integrity of an organ. Moreover, integrin-extracellular matrix interactions play important roles in the coordinated integration of external and internal cues that are essential for proper development. β1 integrin is the most widely expressed integrin and controls various developmental processes, including neurogenesis, chondrogenesis, skin and hair follicle morphogenesis, and myoblast fusion.

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 ...

Monoclonal antibody (mAb) AP7.4 is an anti-integrin antibody recombinantly expressed in Escherichia coli specific to alphavbeta3. It is known that in a variety of RGD-containing molecules, ligand specificity is regulated by structural determinants within the immediate vicinity of the RGD sequence. To better understand the role of the RGD sequence in integrin specificity, we report here the three-dimensional structure of Fab of mAb AP7.4 to a resolution of 2.25 A. The crystals belong to a triclinic space group P1 and the volume of the unit cell is consistent with the presence of two Fab molecules in it. The RGD sequence is located at the tip of a flexible loop in the complementary determining region (CDR-3) of the heavy chain. It has been shown that specific recognition of RGD ligands by their receptors is influenced mainly by the conformation of the tripeptide RGD and the amino acid residues flanking it on either side. Hence, the flexibility of the RGD-carrying loop observed in the crystal ...

Rapid progress has been made in the understanding of the molecular interactions that result in cell adhesion. Many adhesive proteins present in extracellular matrices and in the blood contain the tripeptide arginine-glycine-aspartic acid (RGD) as their cell recognition site. These proteins include fibronectin, vitronectin, osteopontin, collagens, thrombospondin, fibrinogen, and von Willebrand factor. The RGD sequences of each of the adhesive proteins are recognized by at least one member of a family of structurally related receptors, integrins, which are heterodimeric proteins with two membrane-spanning subunits. Some of these receptors bind to the RGD sequence of a single adhesion protein only, whereas others recognize groups of them. The conformation of the RGD sequence in the individual proteins may be critical to this recognition specificity. On the cytoplasmic side of the plasma membrane, the receptors connect the extracellular matrix to the cytoskeleton. More than ten proved or suspected ...

Integrins are heterodimeric proteins made up of alpha and beta subunits. At least 18 alpha and 8 beta subunits have been described in mammals. Integrin family members are membrane receptors involved in cell adhesion and recognition in a variety of processes including embryogenesis, hemostasis, tissue repair, immune response and metastatic diffusion of tumor cells. This gene encodes a beta subunit. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants which encode different protein isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008 ...

Although ACE2 (angiotensin converting enzyme 2) is considered the primary receptor for CoV-2 cell entry, recent reports suggest that alternative pathways may contribute. This paper considers the hypothesis that viral binding to cell-surface integrins may contribute to the high infectivity and widespread extra-pulmonary impacts of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. This potential is suggested on the basis of the emergence of an RGD (arginine-glycine-aspartate) sequence in the receptor-binding domain of the spike protein. RGD is a motif commonly used by viruses to bind cell-surface integrins. Numerous signaling pathways are mediated by integrins and virion binding could lead to dysregulation of these pathways, with consequent tissue damage. Integrins on the surfaces of pneumocytes, endothelial cells and platelets may be vulnerable to CoV-2 virion binding. For instance, binding of intact virions to integrins on alveolar cells could enhance viral entry. Binding of virions to integrins on endothelial cells could ...
Integrins are heterodimeric integral membrane proteins consisting of an α chain and a ß chain. It recognizes p1 and p2 peptides of fibrinogen gamma chain.
Integrins are cell adhesion molecules that play critical roles in development, wound healing, hemostasis, immunity and cancer. Advances in the past two years have shed light on the structural basis for integrin regulation and signaling, especially on how global conformational changes between bent an …
Monoclonal antibodies have become essential tools to study the structure and function of integrins because they recognise distinct conformational states of the receptors (Mould, 1996). Many of these antibodies have been used to study changes in the ligand-binding affinity of integrins on the cell surface (Humphries, 2000); however, in this study, we used their specificities to report defined conformational states during β1-integrin biosynthesis. In particular, we noted that two conformation-specific antibodies, 8E3 and 9EG7, which have been shown to recognise the unbent form of β1-integrins, also react with monomeric β1-integrin subunits. 9EG7 was of particular interest because it seems to recognise an epitope that requires the formation of a disulphide and once this disulphide is formed, the epitope is not lost even after denaturation. The epitope has been mapped previously to within a cysteine-rich stretch (residues 495-602) at the back of the β1-integrin knee region (Bazzoni et al., ...

The extracellular matrix (ECM) is an insoluble network of proteins that provides structural support to nearly all multicellular tissues and organs as well as solid malignancies (1). Most metazoan cells dynamically interact with ECM components via integrins, which are heterodimeric transmembrane proteins composed of α and β subunits (2). Most integrins expressed on the cell surface are present in inactive conformations, and their adhesion to ECM ligands must be precisely regulated via inside-out activation mechanisms. Such regulatory mechanisms occur after extracellular stimuli (e.g., growth factors or cytokines), alter intracellular effector proteins that in turn bind to integrin cytoplasmic regions, and induce conformational changes in the integrin extracellular domains (2). Following activation and engagement with ECM ligands, integrins regulate cytoskeletal dynamics as well as intracellular signal transduction cascades that lead to a wide variety of cellular responses, including ...
The integrin family of cell surface receptors is evolutionary conserved and found in all multicellular animals. In humans 8-alpha and 18-beta integrins are non-covalently associated into 24 dimers. Integrins mediate cell-extracellular matrix and cell-cell interactions and participate in cell signalling. This ideally places integrins to regulate vital processes such as cell adhesion, migration, differentiation and cytoskeleton dynamics. Integrins also play a fundamental role in regulating cell survival and anoikis. In this thesis molecular mechanisms employed by integrins to induce signal transduction, independently or through crosstalk with other receptors, were characterised.. Rictor-mTOR (mTORC2) was required for Akt Ser473 phosphorylation in response to β1 integrin-mediated adhesion as well as EGF-, PDGF- or LPA-stimulation of MCF7 cells. ILK and PAK were dispensable for Akt Ser473 phosphorylation upon β1 integrin-engagement or EGF-stimulation. PAK was needed when this phosphorylation was ...

The molecular structure of mouse Mucin 21 (Muc21)/epiglycanin is proposed to have 98 tandem repeats of 15 amino acids and three exceptional repeats with 12 or 13 amino acids each, followed by a stem domain, a transmembrane domain, and a cytoplasmic tail. A cDNA of Muc21 having 84 tandem repeats of 15 amino acids was constructed and transfected using a Venus vector into HEK 293T cells. The fluorescent cells, which were considered to express Muc21, were nonadherent. This antiadhesion effect was lessened when constructs with smaller numbers of tandem repeats were used, suggesting that the tandem repeat domain plays a crucial role. Cells expressing Muc21 were significantly less adherent to each other and to extracellular matrix components than control cells. Antibody binding to the cell surface integrin subunits alpha5, alpha6, and beta1 was reduced in Muc21 transfectants in a tandem repeat-dependent manner, whereas equal amounts of proteins were detected by Western blot analysis. Muc21 was ...
In their roles as major adhesion receptors, integrins signal across the plasma membrane in both directions. Recent structural and cell biological data suggest models for how integrins transmit signals between their extracellular ligand binding adhesion sites and their cytoplasmic domains, which link …
The ability of cells to migrate is a fundamental physiological process involved in embryonic development, tissue homeostasis, immune surveillance and wound healing. In order for cells to migrate, they must interact with their environment using adhesion receptors, such as integrins, and form specialized adhesion complexes that mediate responses to different extracellular cues. In this review, we discuss the role of integrin adhesion complexes (IACs) in cell migration, highlighting the layers of regulation that are involved, including intracellular signalling cascades, mechanosensing and reciprocal feedback to the extracellular environment. We also discuss the role of IACs in extracellular matrix remodeling and how they impact upon cell migration. ...
Integrins interact with extracellular matrix (ECM) and deliver intracellular signaling for cell proliferation, survival, and motility. During tumor metastasis, integrin-mediated cell adhesion to and migration on the ECM proteins are required for cancer cell survival and adaptation to the new microenvironment. Using stable isotope labeling by amino acids in cell culture-mass spectrometry, we profiled the phosphoproteomic changes induced by the interactions of cell integrins with type I collagen, the most common ECM substratum. Integrin-ECM interactions modulate phosphorylation of 517 serine, threonine, or tyrosine residues in 513 peptides, corresponding to 357 proteins. Among these proteins, 33 key signaling mediators with kinase or phosphatase activity were subjected to small interfering RNA-based functional screening. Three integrin-regulated kinases, DBF4, PAK2, and GRK6, were identified for their critical role in cell adhesion and migration possibly through their regulation of actin ...

An anti-β1 integrin monoclonal antibody AG89 can detect such a conformational change since it recognizes a ligand-inducible epitope in the stalk-like region of β1 subunits. The binding of a 125I-labeled AG89 Fab fragment to α5β1 integrins on K562 cells was assessed and analyzed by the Scatchard method. High affinity binding sites for AG89 are present on cells treated with ligand peptide. In addition, results revealed that cells treated with EDTA also express AG89 binding sites with the same affinity although the number of binding sites is 4-fold lower. AG89 immunoprecipitated α5β1 complexes from surface-labeled K562 ...

The cell adhesion molecule integrin alpha(v)beta(3) is an important player in the process of tumor angiogenesis and metastasis. Abegrin (TM), a fully humanized anti-integrin alpha(v)beta(3) monoclonal antibody, was currently in clinical trials for cancer therapy. Herein, we labeled Abegrin (TM) with In-111, evaluated the in vitro and in vivo characteristics, and investigated whether the expression of integrin alpha(v)beta(3) in tumors could be imaged with In-111-labeled Abegrin (TM).. The binding affinity and specificity of Abegrin (TM) was analyzed using U87MG glioblastoma cells. Abegrin (TM) was coupled with 1,4,7,10-tetraazadodecane-N,N′,NaEuro(3),N′aEuro(3)-tetraacetic acid (DOTA) for In-111 radiolabeling. gamma Imaging of In-111-DOTA-Abegrin (TM) was carried out in nude mice bearing both integrin alpha(v)beta(3)-positive U87MG and integrin alpha(v)beta(3)-negative HT-29 tumors. Biodistribution and blocking studies of In-111-DOTA-Abegrin (TM) were investigated in U87MG tumor-bearing nude ...
Integrins are cell surface receptors that physically bridge the extracellular matrix to the cytoskeleton and responsible for adhesion, migration, and signaling. Integrin function is intimately controlled by their membrane traffic. For example, integrins are dynamically internalized from the cell posterior and recycled to the cell anterior during cell migration. Misregulation of integrins is intimately linked with cancer progression, including metastasis and cell proliferation and survival. We have recently uncovered that integrin membrane traffic is controlled by AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), an energy stress sensing kinase within cells at becomes activated upon energy stress such as by an increase in cell AMP:ATP ratio. I confirmed that AMPK activation resulted in a reduction of cell surface β1-integrin. Using assays that selectively measure integrin exocytosis and endocytosis, I found that AMPK activation regulates β1-integrin recycling and possibly endocytosis. I demonstrated that ...
OBJECTIVE: It was recently demonstrated that synoviocytes (FLS) from rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients express BAFF transcripts that are up-regulated by tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha) and interferon-gamma (IFNgamma). Thus, BAFF increases in RA target cells might be related to activation of the receptors of innate immunity. The purpose of this study was to determine whether ligands of Toll-like receptor 2 (TLR-2), TLR-4, TLR-9, and alpha5beta1 integrin are able to induce BAFF synthesis by RA FLS. METHODS: Quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction analyses and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays were performed to evaluate BAFF messenger RNA induction and BAFF release from FLS after stimulation by ligands for TLR-2, TLR-4, TLR-9, alpha5beta1 integrin (bacterial lipopeptide [BLP] palmitoyl-3-cysteine-serine-lysine-4, lipopolysaccharide [LPS], CpG, and protein I/II, respectively), TNFalpha, and IFNgamma. RESULTS: In contrast to IFNgamma, neither TNFalpha, LPS, BLP, nor CpG induced
During cell migration, integrins are redistributed from focal adhesions undergoing disassembly in the cells walking sides to brand-new focal adhesions putting together in leading sides. the walking sides and the set up of brand-new focal adhesions at the migrating methodologies (Lauffenburger and Horwitz, 1996; Caswell et al., 2009). Constitutive integrin turnover, internalization, and taking have got been confirmed under basal cell migration circumstances (Pellinen and Ivaska, 2006; Mosesson et al., 2008). In latest years, clathrin-mediated endocytosis provides been proven to play a pivotal function in the internalization of surface area integrins at focal adhesions that are going through basal Troxacitabine turnover (Chao and Kunz, 2009; Ezratty et al., 2009). Nevertheless, few research have got analyzed powerful integrin disassembly, redistribution, and reassembly in extremely motile cells (Webb et al., 2002). In reality, in vivo cell migration is certainly often significantly increased by ...
Binding studies of purified, platelet α2β1 integrin, and of ligand-binding A domain of this integrin to native collagen and to purified 3/4 and 1/4 fragments of collagen, generated by collagenase-3 revealed the necessity for retention of the triple-helical conformation of the collagen fragments for α2β1 integrin binding. HT1080 cell attachment to type I collagen was α2β1 integrin-mediated, and collagenase-cleavage of type I collagen perturbed cell attachment via this integrin at physiological temperature. This is likely to be due to melting of the collagen fragments, destabilizing of the triple-helical conformation of type I collagen and the resultant loss of α2β1 integrin binding sites on the collagen molecules. However, cell attachment to the native collagen fragments was still possible at room temperature, indicating that collagenase does not destroy α2β1 integrin binding sites on type I collagen, and that attachment can occur below physiological temperature ...
Given its effects on cell spreading and motility, Rap1 was postulated some time ago to be involved in integrin function; however, confirmation of this required alternative cellular models. Leukocytes represented such a model, since the positive effect of GTP-bound Rap1 on integrin-mediated adhesion is easier to see: in blood cells, in contrast to the more traditional, fibroblast and epithelial, adherent cell systems, integrins are normally kept inactive. Upon inside-out signalling elicited by various agonists, leukocyte integrins can rapidly and transiently be converted to a functionally active, ligand-binding state able to trigger the classic outside-in signalling to Rho-like GTPases (Harris et al., 2000; Schoenwaelder and Burridge, 1999).. Rap1 regulates functional activation of several integrin heterodimers:α 4β1 (VLA-4), α5β1 (VLA-5), αLβ2 (LFA-1, CD11a/CD18), αMβ2 (CR3, CD11b/CD18) and αIIbβ3 (Reedquist et al., 2000; Caron et al., 2000; Katagiri et al., 2000; Arai et al., 2001; ...

aß heterodimeric receptors (4). Recently, two types of signaling by integrins have been extensively discussed: transmission of signals into the cell following binding of ligands or counter-receptors to the integrins (outside-in signaling), and regulation of the avidity and conformation of integrins by signals generated by other receptors within the cell (inside-out signaling) (5). Interaction of integrins with the ECM proteins can induce tyrosine phosphorylation of many intracellular proteins.. Integrin clusters in macromolecular complexes, ligand occupancy, and tyrosine phosphorylation are the key events that result in diverse processes such as cell migration and differentiation, tissue remodelling, cell proliferation, angiogenesis, and tumor cell invasion and metastasis (3,6). Focal adhesion kinase (FAK) becomes tyrosine-phosphorylated during integrin-mediated cell adhesion and is believed to play important roles in integrin signal transduction (7,8). FAK, a non-receptor tyrosine kinase, ...
Abstract Background The regulation of normal and stress-induced erythropoiesis is incompletely understood. Integrin-dependent adhesion plays important roles in erythropoiesis, but how integrins are regulated during erythropoiesis remains largely elusive. Design and Methods To obtain novel insights into the regulation of erythropoiesis, we used cellular and molecular approaches to analyze the role of SWAP-70 and the control of integrins through SWAP-70. In addition, mice deficient for this protein were investigated under normal and erythropoietic stress conditions. Results We show that SWAP-70, a protein involved in cytoskeletal F-actin rearrangements and integrin regulation in mast cells, is expressed in hematopoietic stem cells and myeloid-erythroid precursors. Although Swap-70-/- mice are not anemic, erythroblastic differentiation is perturbed, and SWAP-70 is required for an efficient erythropoietic stress response to acute anemia and for erythropoietic recovery after bone marrow ...
The major contribution of β2 integrins in immune defense and inflammatory processes relates to their pivotal role in mediating cellular contacts between leukocytes and endothelium as a prerequisite for subsequent transmigration towards a chemotactic stimulus. Previous in vitro studies have demonstrated that uPAR forms complexes with integrins ((12), (13)) and thereby modulates integrin-mediated binding to extracellular matrix proteins ((26)-(28)).. This study demonstrates that uPAR is needed for β2 integrin-dependent leukocyte recruitment into sites of acute inflammation. Migration of neutrophils and monocytes into the inflamed peritoneum was drastically reduced after 4 h in uPAR-deficient mice. Consistently, β2 integrin- dependent cell adhesion of leukocytes to endothelial cells was abrogated after depletion of uPAR from the cell surface, whereas reconstitution with soluble intact, but not truncated, uPAR could totally rescue β2 integrin-mediated adhesion. Regulation of β2 integrin ...
This study demonstrates an important role for the nonreceptor tyrosine kinase Pyk2 in the integrin-mediated activation of PMNs that contributes to normal degranulation responses required for efficient host defense to S. aureus infection. Pyk2-deficient PMNs exhibited reduced degranulation responses following integrin ligation both in vitro and during bacterial infection in vivo; however, they responded normally to soluble agonists, suggesting that the integrin signaling pathway was the major response affected in the pyk2 mutant cells. It is clear that unlike Src-family or Syk tyrosine kinases, Pyk2 is acting in a more distal step in the integrin signaling pathway, because many integrin-mediated functions were normal in pyk2−/− PMNs, including attachment, adhesion, and integrin-mediated activation of superoxide production. These limited impairments correlate with the only partially reduced integrin-mediated tyrosine phosphorylation responses, although reduction in phosphorylation of specific ...
This paper shows that, in confluent human umbilical vein endothelial cell (EC) monolayers, the integrin heterodimers alpha 2 beta 1 and alpha 5 beta 1, but not other members of the beta 1 subfamily, are located at cell-cell contact borders and not at cellular free edges. Also the alpha v chain, but not its most common partner beta 3, that is widely expressed in EC cell-matrix junctions, is found at cell-cell borders. In EC monolayers, the putative ligands of alpha 2 beta 1 and alpha 5 beta 1 receptors, i.e., laminin, collagen type IV, and fibronectin, are also organized in strands corresponding to cell-cell borders. The location of the above integrin receptors is not an artifact of in vitro culture since it has been noted also in explanted islets of the native umbilical vein endothelium. The integrins alpha 2 beta 1 and alpha 5 beta 1 play a role in the maintenance of endothelial monolayer continuity in vitro. Indeed, specific antibodies to alpha 2 beta 1, alpha 5 beta 1, and the synthetic ...

Peptides or short protein domains derived from the extracellular matrix are reported to possess anti-tumor properties. In the present study, one such molecule Hexastatin or [α6(IV)NC1] a non-collagenous domain of α6 chain of type (IV) collagen was derived from the carboxy terminal and was found to inhibit tumor growth, but the mechanism by which it inhibits the growth of solid tumors has not been reported yet. In the present study, we identified that the biological functions of hexastatin are attributed to its binding to different cell surface integrins. We identified that hexastatin binds to α3β1, αVβ3 and α5β1 integrins and inhibits p38-MAPK signaling. Hexastatin competes with human vascular endothelial cells in binding to α1β1 integrins on type IV collagen, and or with α5β1/αVβ3 integrins on fibronectin/vitronectin matrix, thus inhibiting endothelial migration and tube formation. Interestingly, p38-MAPK phosphorylation was not inhibited in α3 and β3 integrin null endothelial ...
Fibronectin (FN) is an abundant component of the ECM expressed during embryonic development, angiogenesis, wound healing, and tumor invasion. Cell migration is critical for all these conditions and the motile cells often display altered expression of FN-binding integrins such as α5β1, αvβ3, and others (Mizejewski, 1999; Stupack and Cheresh, 2002; Watt, 2002). All these integrins bind the RGD motif in the central cell-binding domain of FN (Pankov and Yamada, 2002), but it is still unclear if and how they mediate specific cellular responses to FN. Here, we explored the possibility that they promote different aspects of cell migration and that switching integrins allows cells to modulate their motile response to FN.. The dynamic regulation of the F-actin network is crucial to cell migration and is mediated by multiple actin-polymerizing, -capping, -severing, and -cross-linking proteins (Pollard and Borisy, 2003; Ridley et al., 2003). The Arp2/3 complex and cofilin are involved in the generation ...

Integrin beta-3 (β3) or CD61 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the ITGB3 gene. CD61 is a cluster of differentiation found on thrombocytes. The ITGB3 protein product is the integrin beta chain beta 3. Integrins are integral cell-surface proteins composed of an alpha chain and a beta chain. A given chain may combine with multiple partners resulting in different integrins. Integrin beta 3 is found along with the alpha IIb chain in platelets. Integrins are known to participate in cell adhesion as well as cell-surface-mediated signaling. Defectively expressed β3 integrin subunit has been correlated with presence of endometriosis, and has been suggested as a putative marker of this condition. CD61 has been shown to interact with PTK2, ITGB3BP, TLN1 and CIB1.

JAK2-V617F-positive chronic myeloproliferative neoplasia (CMN) commonly displays dysfunction of integrins and adhesion molecules expressed on platelets, erythrocytes, and leukocytes. However, the mechanism by which the 2 major leukocyte integrin chains, β1 and β2, may contribute to CMN pathophysiology remained unclear. β1 (α4β1; VLA-4) and β2 (αLβ2; LFA-1) integrins are essential regulators for attachment of leukocytes to endothelial cells. We here showed enhanced adhesion of granulocytes from mice with JAK2-V617F knockin (JAK2+/VF mice) to vascular cell adhesion molecule 1- (VCAM1-) and intercellular adhesion molecule 1-coated (ICAM1-coated) surfaces. Soluble VCAM1 and ICAM1 ligand binding assays revealed increased affinity of β1 and β2 integrins for their respective ligands. For β1 integrins, this correlated with a structural change from the low- to the high-affinity conformation induced by JAK2-V617F. JAK2-V617F triggered constitutive activation of the integrin inside-out signaling ...

We here showed enhanced adhesion of granulocytes from mice with JAK2-V617F knockin (JAK2+/VF mice) to vascular cell adhesion molecule 1- (VCAM1-) and intercellular adhesion molecule 1-coated (ICAM1-coated) surfaces. Soluble VCAM1 and ICAM1 ligand binding assays revealed increased affinity of β1 and β2 integrins for their respective ligands. For β1 integrins, this correlated with a structural change from the low- to the high-affinity conformation induced by JAK2-V617F. JAK2-V617F triggered constitutive activation of the integrin inside-out signaling ...

CD49d / integrin alpha 4, unlike other alpha integrins, neither contains an I-domain, nor undergoes disulfide-linked cleavage. It associates with beta 7 chain to form alpha 4 / beta 7 integrin, and with beta 1 chain (CD29) to form VLA-4 integrin. These complexes are important for lymphocyte migration from circulation into tissue (binding VCAM-1) and homing of T cell subsets to Peyer s patches (binding MadCAM-1), but VLA-4 is also target for invasive bacteria which contain invasin. CD49d is essential for differentiation and migration of hematopoietic stem cells by their adhesion to bone marrow stromal cells, and provides a costimulatory signal to TCR-CD3 complex by inducing phosphorylation of some focal adhesion proteins ...
Integrins are a family of cell adhesion molecules comprising 18α and 8β subunits that combine into at least 24 heterodimers. Intβ1 partners with α subunits to form 12 potential integrin receptors, which bind to a wide array of arginine-glycine-aspartic acid (RGD)-containing extracellular matrix (ECM) molecules such as collagens, laminin, and fibronectin (17, 18). Intβ1 consists of a large extracellular domain, a single transmembrane stretch, and a short cytoplasmic domain devoid of an intrinsic enzymatic activity. The cytoplasmic domain transduces bidirectional signals from inside the cell by regulating the conformation and ligand affinities of the extracellular domain of Intβ1 (inside-out signaling), while mediating downstream signaling and interactions with the cytoskeleton (outside-in signaling). The outside-in signaling is initiated upon ligand binding to Intβ1, followed by the formation of adhesion complexes assembled from signaling molecules, such as tyrosine kinases, ...
This gene encodes an RGD-containing protein that binds to type I, II and IV collagens. The RGD motif is found in many extracellular matrix proteins modulating cell adhesion and serves as a ligand recognition sequence for several integrins. This protein plays a role in cell-collagen interactions and may be involved in endochondrial bone formation in cartilage. The protein is induced by transforming growth factor-beta and acts to inhibit cell adhesion. Mutations in this gene are associated with multiple types of corneal dystrophy.

PY - 1998/5. Y1 - 1998/5. N2 - An elaborate series of morphogenetic events must be precisely coordinated during development to promote the formation of the elaborate three-dimensional structure of the normal heart. In this study we focus on discussing how interconnections between the cardiac myocyte and its surrounding environment regulate cardiac form and function. In vitro experiments from our laboratories provide direct evidence that cardiac cell shape is regulated by a dynamic interaction between constituents of the extracellular matrix (ECM) and by specific members of the integrin family of matrix receptors. Our data indicates that phenotypic information is stored in the tertiary structure and chemical identity of the ECM. This information appears to be actively communicated and transduced by the α ...
The signaling events downstream of integrins that regulate cell attachment and motility are only partially understood. Finally, we show that deletion of c Src or c-Cbl qualified prospects to a lower in osteoclast migration. Therefore, presenting of sixth is v3 integrin induce the development of a Pyk2/Src/Cbl complicated in which Cbl can be a crucial regulator of Src kinase activity and of cell adhesion and migration.

CD31 is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily consisting of six Ig-related domains. It is constitutively expressed by platelets, monocytes, and some lymphocytes, but at tenfold higher levels on vascular endothelial cells. CD31 has both homotypic and heterotypic adhesive properties. We have mapped the homotypic binding sites using a deletion series of CD31-Fc chimeras and a panel of anti-CD31 monoclonal antibodies. An extensive surface of CD31 is involved in homotypic binding with domains 2 and 3 and domains 5 and 6 playing key roles. A model consistent with the experimental data is that CD31 on one cell binds to CD31 on an apposing cell in an antiparallel interdigitating mode requiring full alignment of the six domains of each molecule. In addition to establishing intercellular homotypic contacts. CD31 binding leads to augmented adhesion via beta 1 integrins. The positive cooperation between CD31 and beta 1 integrins can occur in heterologous primate cells (COS cells). The interaction is ...

This image shows the perineurial glia that ensheath the nervous system in Drosophila. Perlecan tagged with GFP (green) marks the extracellular matrix that tightly associates with the perineurial glia (labeled with a red, RFP-tagged membrane marker). The perineurial glia in turn ensheath the entire peripheral nerve including the peripheral axons (labeled in blue) at the core of each nerve. The transmembrane protein Basigin interacts with integrins at focal adhesions to regulate the interaction of integrins with the extracellular matrix, and loss of Basigin leads to compression of the peripheral nerve. For more information, see the article by Hunter et al. (pages 3360-3373). ...
Background Integrin signaling is an attractive target for anti-cancer treatment. GLPG0187 is a broad spectrum integrin receptor antagonist (IRA). GLPG0187 inhibited tumor growth and metastasis in mouse models. Methods We aimed to determine the Recommended Phase II Dose (RP2D) and to assess safety and tolerability of continuous i.v. infusion in ... read more patients with advanced malignant solid tumors. Anticipated dose levels were 20, 40, 80, 160, 320, and 400 mg/day in a modified 3 + 3 design. Plasma concentrations of GLPG0187 were assessed to characterize the pharmacokinetics (PK). C-terminal telopeptide of type I collagen (CTX) was used as pharmacodynamics marker. Results Twenty patients received GLPG0187. No dose limiting toxicities (DLTs) were observed. The highest possible and tested dose was 400 mg/day. Fatigue was the most frequently reported side effect (25 %). Recurrent Port-A-Cath-related infections and skin toxicity suggest cutaneous integrin inhibition. No dose-dependent toxicity ...
Disparities are observed in the expression pattern of the RXRs. RXRβ is widely distributed and can be detected in almost every tissue (Hamada et al., 1989; Yu et al., 1991; Mangelsdorf et al., 1992; Dolle et al., 1994). RXRα is predominantly expressed in liver, kidney, epidermis, and intestine and is the major RXR in skin (Mangelsdorf et al., 1990, 1992; Dolle et al., 1994). RXRγ is mostly restricted to the muscle and certain parts of the brain as well as to the pituitary (Mangelsdorf et al., 1992; Dolle et al., 1994; Haugen et al., 1997; Chiang et al., 1998).. In addition to the fact that RXRs are heterodimeric partners of multiple nuclear receptors regulating various developmental and metabolic processes, this RXR distribution suggests that RXRs play critical roles in a wide range of these processes. To address the issue of the RXR functional role in vivo, knockout of all three RXRs has been performed in the mouse (for comprehensive reviews, see Kastner et al., 1995; Mark and Chambon, 2003; ...
