Background: Integrin alpha 4/CD49d
Integrin alpha 4, also known as CD49d and VLA sunbunit alpha, associates with either Integrin beta 1 or beta 7 subunits to form heterodimers that serve as receptors for fibronectin and VCAM-1. Integrin alpha 4 beta 1 is expressed on peripheral lymphocytes, thymocytes, and monocytes, while Integrin alpha 4 beta 7 is expressed on peripheral lymphocytes and a small subset of thymocytes. On T cells, the alpha 4 subunit may contribute to cytotoxic activity. Over amino acids 34-976, mouse Integrin alpha 4 shares 85% amino acid sequence identity to human Integrin alpha 4.
