Protein function

Integrin alpha-6/beta-1 is a receptor for laminin on platelets. Integrin alpha-6/beta-4 is a receptor for laminin in epithelial cells and it plays a critical structural role in the hemidesmosome (By similarity). ITGA6:ITGB4 binds to NRG1 (via EGF domain) and this binding is essential for NRG1-ERBB signaling . ITGA6:ITGB4 binds to IGF1 and this binding is essential for IGF1 signaling .

Protein tissue specificity

Integrin alpha-6/beta-4 is predominantly expressed by epithelia. Isoforms containing segment X1 are ubiquitously expressed. Isoforms containing segment X1X2 are expressed in heart, kidney, placenta, colon, duodenum, myoblasts and myotubes, and in a limited number of cell lines; they are always coexpressed with the ubiquitous isoform containing segment X1. In some tissues (e.g. Salivary gland), isoforms containing cytoplasmic segment A and isoforms containing segment B are detected while in others, only isoforms containing one cytoplasmic segment are found (segment A in epidermis and segment B in kidney).

Protein sequence and domain

Belongs to the integrin alpha chain family.; Contains 7 FG-GAP repeats.

Protein post-translational modifications

Isoforms containing segment A, but not segment B, are the major targets for PMA-induced phosphorylation. Phosphorylation occurs on ‘Ser-1103’ of isoform alpha-6X1X2A. Phosphorylation is not required for the induction of integrin alpha-6A/beta-1 high affinity but may reduce the affinity for ligand.; In invasive prostate cancer ITGA6 undergoes PLAU-mediated cleavage at residues Arg-634-635-Arg in a time-dependent manner enhancing cell invasion and migration in vitro.; Palmitoylation by DHHC3 enhances stability and cell surface expression.

Protein cellular localization

Cell membrane ; Single-pass type I membrane protein . Cell membrane ; Lipid-anchor .


Integrins are alpha/beta heterodimeric cell surface receptors that play a pivotal role in cell adhesion and migration, as well as in growth and survival (1,2). The integrin family contains at least 18 alpha and 8 beta subunits that form 24 known integrins with distinct tissue distribution and overlapping ligand specificities (3). Integrins not only transmit signals to cells in response to the extracellular environment (outside-in signaling), but also sense intracellular cues to alter their interaction with the extracellular environment (inside-out signaling) (1,2).Integrin alpha6 is a 120 kDa protein with two splice variants, integrin alpha6, 6A and 6B (3), which function as receptors for laminins on the basal membrane to mediate cellular adhesion events (4-6). alpha6 integrins have been shown to play an important role in hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell homing to the bone marrow.
