Integrin alpha 9 is a protein encoded by a gene ITGA9 in humans. This gene encodes the integrin α. Integrin and cells α chain – is a heterodimeric integral membrane glycoprotein consisting of a mediated β chain matrix adhesion – cell and cell. protein linked to integrin is osteopontin receptor β-1, chains, and VCAM1, cytotactin, the gene encodes. The expression of this gene, small cell lung cancer cancers.This genes, it is possible to increase the encoding integrin α was found. Integrin and cells α chain – is a heterodimeric integral membrane glycoprotein consisting of a mediated β chain matrix adhesion – cell and cell. protein linked to integrin is osteopontin receptor β-1, chains, and VCAM1, cytotactin, the gene encodes. The expression of this gene can be increased to small cell lung cancer has been found.


Each consisting of β subunits and α, integrin family of adhesion receptors are hetero-structure of glycoproteins few. New integrin α subunit cDNA portion was isolated by TGF-β stimulated guinea pig epithelial cells of the respiratory tract 1991. Am that has been reported in R. Pytela previously (Earl, DJ, D. Sheppard, J. Bruess, and C. Ruegg . J. The Respir. Serumoru BIOL. 5:170-177). Now, we the DNA and amino acid sequences of the human homolog of a first subgroup, called alpha 9 DNA human lung cDNA library, a human intestinal cDNA library from Terra -2 cell lines, and U937, HL-60 determine. This sequence is expected to encode a mature protein of 1006 amino acids with an identity of 39% and 4 integrin subunits predetermined. Northern blot analysis, and 9 mRNA was detected in Caco-2 and human cancer cell lines Terra -2. Anti-peptide antibodies to predict COOH-terminal sequence of the alpha 9 immunoprecipitation (, 150 W kD/130 decrease 140 kD/115 non-reducing W) -2 by hetero solution Terra. Suggesting the β-1,, is removed, and 9 Immune lysate Partners β subunit, one containing integrins Terra -2 immunodepletion of beta is 9 for these cells. Immunohistochemistry and in the airways epithelium basal layer of the squamous epithelium, and smooth muscle, skeletal muscle, and 9 is detected by hepatocytes.

Identification of our recent homozygous deletion in 3p21.3 lung cancer, provides further support for the presence of tumor suppressor genes in this chromosomal region. As part of efforts to positional cloning of tumor suppressor gene 3p21.3 above, by using fragments of the genome of conservation between species, it is characterized transcription unit in this area. Be coded a new integrin α subunit was found, α is related to the alpha 4 of the structure closely, but in the pathological setting of physiological and lung, gene is completely different from the expression of α-4 called RLC is. The exact localization of the gene, suggesting that it is a good candidate for tumor suppressor gene in lung cancer, the extensive research we This finding, somatic mutations in the coding region is I will cover one third of the genes was observed. Interestingly, however, the lungs of the fetus abundance, and RLC is represented by (SCLC) lung cancer, small cell lung cancer in particular. It is changed to alpha 4 to be considered both primary tumors and dysregulated cell lines SCLC in a sample may be caused by deletion or mutation of other genes have not been identified yet to play a role in homologous transition RLC expression can contribute to the acquisition lung cancer, malignant phenotype of this type to suggest that the.

Members of the integrin family, is a significant overlap ligand specificity, many cells are able to express the integrin receptors for the same ligand. For example, recognizing the tenascin as integrin ligands at least five different, four of which are connected to the same region proteins, the first fibronectin type III repeat (TNfn3). Usually, ligation of integrin receptors differ with respect to the ligand, the cells from (SW480) colorectal cancer is not connected to TNfn3 to explore the possibility that cause various effects in the intracellular signal transduction and cell behavior we was using. The same effect as the one production fake is, growth tail 3 transfected significantly better than testing the concentration of fake V any on to spread the TNfn3 and Nine Tails cell adhesion and heterologous expression fake V tail 3 of tenascin receptor. 6 of fake V tail included – (which is a less enthusiastic) is transfected, or failed to spread, I grow.

Cytoplasmic domain and tail including the tail fusion 3 extracellular domain leads to growth and adhesion similar to the -3 transfectants tail to tail through 6 expression of the chimeric subunit, spread significantly less. The cell line of these, spread -6 delivery transfected fibronectin, fake V tail, and again, cells infected with chimeric tail 3/6 tail subunit, the expression fake V tail 3 on cells and the cell-free system growth when it is sown. Phosphorylation and distribution of Paki cylindrical mitogen activated kinase and focal adhesion kinase, cell proliferation is associated with ERK2 always, cell adhesion, the phosphorus of any of these proteins in the absence of the growth or proliferation I have been associated with the oxidation. These data show that it is possible integrin receptor different to the ligand produces a different effect significantly cell proliferation, extracellular integrin subunits and contributes to these differences both that the tail of the cytoplasmic domain .

Characteristics of the MGC clone. The availability of the cDNA sequence, the quality of the genome annotation is based on full-length cDNA, considerable, to ET alignment and gene prediction not the case in particular is improved. In order to gain insight into the value of the MGC sequences for genome annotation, we they human MGC full ORF clone was unique when it was deposited at the National Center for Biotechnology Information database RefSeq full ORF cDNA I chose the set. We compared the gene prediction from the model protein (IPI) Protein Index International is received before the sequence of the MGC is generated, these sequences. Genetic model because it is defined in part by the alignment of the genomic sequences and mRNA, do not want to compare the MGC clone of a set of proteins, including IPI MGC sequences. So, in that order after the publication of the first room of the IPI set, we use the new MGC cDNA of these for this comparison only. Gene represented by clone MGC sequence, on average, corresponding IPI was 29% longer than those encodings, the predicted protein. In addition, 34% of MGC-specific full ORF does not match the prediction of the IPI identified cDNA.
