Background: Integrin beta 4/CD104
Integrin beta 4, also known as CD104, is a 200 kDa type I transmembrane (TM) glycoprotein that associates only with Integrin alpha 6/CD29. Integrin alpha 6 beta 4 is predominantly expressed by epithelial cells, binds laminins, and is essential for formation of hemidesmosomes and connection of the dermis to the epidermis. Mouse integrin beta 4 contains a 680 amino acid (aa) extracellular domain (ECD) with a metal-binding site and four cysteine-rich repeats, a 22 aa TM segment and an unusually long 1073 aa cytoplasmic tail that organizes hemidesmosome components. Isoforms with shortened cytoplasmic tails have been described. Mouse and human beta 4 ECD show 88% aa identity.
