Background: Integrin alpha L/CD11a
Integrin subunit alpha L/CD11a is a 180 kDa type I TM glycoprotein that interacts only with Integrin beta 2/CD18 to form LFA-1, a leukocyte adhesion protein which binds endothelial cell ICAM. Human Integrin alpha L contains a 1064 aa extracellular domain (ECD), a 20 aa TM sequence and a 58 aa cytoplasmic domain. The ECD contains seven repeats that form a beta-propeller structure and one inserted vWA domain (I domain) containing a metal ion-dependent adhesion site (MIDAS). Human and mouse Integrin alpha L ECD share 74% aa identity. A second isoform has a 53 aa insert in the ECD.
