Gene: Itga2 (integrin subunit alpha 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Itga2
Name: integrin subunit alpha 2
Description: Exhibits several functions, including collagen binding activity, integrin binding activity, and laminin binding activity; involved in several processes, including animal organ development, positive regulation of biosynthetic process, and positive regulation of cell migration; localizes to several cellular components, including the axon terminus, cell surface, and focal adhesion; biomarker of placental insufficiency; orthologous to human ITGA2 (integrin subunit alpha 2); PARTICIPATES IN integrin mediated signaling pathway; syndecan signaling pathway; arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-pilocarpine; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: CD49B; GPIa; HPA-5; integrin alpha 2; integrin alpha-2; integrin, alpha 2; platelet glycoprotein Ia
