Background: CD11b/Integrin alpha M
The Integrin family proteins are heterodimeric transmembrane receptors composed of an alpha and a beta subunit. The Integrin alpha M subunit, also known as MAC-1 alpha subunit or CD11b, combines with the Integrin beta 2 subunit (CD18) to form the non-covalent heterodimer Integrin alpha M/ beta 2, also known as MAC-1 and Complement Receptor type 3 (CR3). Integrin alpha M/ beta 2 is expressed on granulocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells and natural killer cells. Upon activation, alpha M/ beta 2 can bind several ligands (including ICAM-1, Fibrinogen and the C3 Complement Fragment C3bi) to mediate phagocyte adhesion, migration and ingestion of complement-opsonized particles.
