General description

The gene ITGA2B (integrin subunit α 2b) encodes one of the 18 α subunits of integrins, which are transmembrane α/β heterodimers. The heterodimers, in mammals, are made up of a combination of one of 18 possible α subunits together with one of eight β subunits. The α and β subunits are type-I membrane proteins that contain a single transmembrane region linking a large extracellular domain and short noncatalytic cytoplasmic tail.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Integrins function in various cellular processes, such as tissue migration during embryogenesis, cellular adhesion, cancer metastases, and lymphocyte helper and killer cell functions. The heterodimer αIIbβ3 functions primarily in platelet aggregation, a crucial process in hemostasis and thrombosis. Integrin αIIbβ3, also referred to as glycoprotein IIbIIIa is a major adhesion receptor on platelets that is capable of binding to fibrinogen upon platelet stimulation. Defects in this gene have been associated with Glanzmann thrombasthenia, an autosomal recessive bleeding disorder.
