Background Cell adhesion to extracellular matrix components or to cell surface proteins, especially those expressed by leukocytes and endothelial cells, is mediated by integrins. Integrins contain noncovalently associated alpha and beta subunits. At least 17 alpha and 8 beta subunits have been identified and these proteins can heterodimerize to form 22 different receptors. The alpha6beta4 integrin is a receptor for various laminins and binds with the highest affinity to laminins 4 and 5. It exhibits elevated expression in the basal cell layer of stratified epithelia, in Schwann cells at the onset of myelination, and in CD4-CD8- pre-T lymphocytes entering the thymus. In addition, alpha6beta4 expression is increased in squamous carcinomas where it promotes invasion through a targeting of PI3 kinase activity. The majority of beta4 comprises a cytoplasmic domain with unique signaling properties. The C-terminal portion of this domain contains two pairs of type III fibronectin-like motifs (FNIII) and a tyrosine activation motif (TAM). Additional domains in the cytoplasmic tail bind Shc and activate the MAPK pathway. Thus, integrin beta4 is an integrin subunit that is important for cell survival, growth, and differentiation. This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis.
