Background: Integrin alpha 5/CD49e
The Integrin alpha 5 subunit, also called CD49e, associates with the Integrin beta 1 subunit (CD29) to form the VLA-5 complex. It functions as a receptor for fibronectin and is expressed on fibroblasts, endothelial cells, epithelial cells, platelets and some melanoma cell lines (1, 2).
