Background: Integrin alpha 9
Integrin alpha 9 is a 150 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is widely expressed and is found on smooth muscle, keratinocytes, skeletal muscle and hepatocytes. It principally associates with the beta 1 Integrin. alpha 9 beta 1 binds to VEGF-C, VEGF-D, and osteopontin. The 951 amino acid (aa) extracellular domain of mouse Integrin alpha 9 contains three beta -propellor repeats and multiple PheGly-GlyAlaPro repeats. A potential proteolytic cleavage site in human alpha 9 ECD is absolutely conserved in mouse alpha 9 ECD (Arg566-Val567). The ECD of mouse Integrin alpha 9 shares 95% and 89% aa sequence identity to rat and human Integrin alpha 9, respectively.
