Integrin beta 6 (ITG beta 6) is a 95 kDa member of the Integrin beta family. It forms noncovalent heterodimers with Integrin alpha V and appears on epithelia following injury or inflammation. It activates TGF-beta and assists keratinocyte migration. Human Integrin beta 6 is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is 767 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains a 688 aa extracellular domain (ECD) (aa 22-709) that incorporates a 241 aa VWF-A domain. Over aa 22-707, human integrin beta 6 ECD shares 90% and 93% aa sequence identity with mouse and pig integrin beta 6 ECD, respectively.
