Gene: Itga6 (integrin subunit alpha 6) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Itga6
Name: integrin subunit alpha 6
Description: Exhibits laminin binding activity; involved in cell-cell adhesion, cellular response to organic cyclic compound, and positive regulation of cell-substrate adhesion; localizes to the cell-cell adherens junction, filopodium, and integrin alpha6-beta4 complex; orthologous to human ITGA6 (integrin subunit alpha 6); PARTICIPATES IN integrin mediated signaling pathway; arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy pathway; cell-extracellular matrix signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: integrin alpha-6; integrin, alpha 6
