Background: Integrin beta 3/CD61
Integrin beta 3 (ITGB3) is also known as platelet glycoprotein IIIa (GPIIIa) and CD61. Integrins are integral cell-surface proteins known to participate in both cell adhesion and cell-surface mediated signaling. They are composed of an alpha chain and a beta chain. ITGB3 is an integrin beta chain that forms a heterodimer with alpha-IIb or alpha-V chains. It is involved in platelet aggregation, and serves as an anchor for fibrinogen, allowing platelets to form aggregates or clots. A functional absense of ITGB3 leads to Glanzmann's thrombasthenia, a condition where platelets are activated, but fail to form an aggregate. Alternatively spliced transcripts encoding different proteins have been described, in human.
