ITGB5

A gene on chromosome 3q21.2 that encodes an integrin beta chain protein (integrins are noncovalently associated transmembrane glycoprotein receptors, composed one of 18 different alpha and one of 8 different beta chains). The beta-5 chain partners with the alpha-5 chain to form a fibronectin receptor that recognises the RGD sequence in the ligand.
