Background: Integrin alpha 2/CD49b
The Integrin alpha 2 subunit, also known as CD49b and VLA-2 alpha subunit, forms a heterodimer with beta 1 Integrin. The alpha 2 beta 1 Integrin is a collagen receptor that binds expressing cells to collagen and regulates collagen and collagenase secretion. Notably, this subunit has an "I" domain that is resistant to proteolysis. Over amino acids (aa) 27-1129, mouse Integrin alpha 2 shares 80% aa sequence identity with human Integrin alpha 2.
