ICAM1


Also found in: Acronyms.

ICAM1

A gene on chromosome 19p13.3-p13.2 that encodes a cell surface glycoprotein expressed on endothelial cells and cells of the immune system. It binds to integrins CD11a/CD18 or CD11b/CD18, and serves as a cell receptor for rhinoviruses.

The results suggested that four key pathways (metabolic pathways, TNF signaling pathway, rRNA processing, and cytoplasm), the key gene ICAM1, three miRNAs (hsa-miR7-5p, hsa-miR-433-3p, and hsa-miR-133b), and six TFs (ZBTB7A, OVOL1, GATA3, TFDP1, SMAD1, and QSOX) might play important roles in PD development.
Next, the protein-protein interaction (PPI) network was evaluated and top degree hub genes were listed: ubiquitin A-52 residue ribosomal protein fusion product 1 (UBA52), ribosomal protein L38 (RPL38), integrin subunit alpha L (ITGAL), intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM1), interleukin 7 receptor (IL7R), interleukin 7 (IL7), REL protooncogene, NF-KB subunit (REL) and NF-KB inhibitor alpha (NFKBIA), Vav guanine nucleotide exchange factor 1 (VAV1), and lymphocyte cytosolic protein 2 (LCP2).

They also stimulate the osteoklastogenesis and the expression of genes associated with inflammation as well as inducing the expression of ICAM1 in the bronchial epithelial cells [13].
Overexpression of human full length MARCH9 results in reduced expressions of MHC I, HLA-DM, -DQ, -DR and -DO, CD4, ALCAM, and ICAM1 at the cell surface, suggesting a possible role in immune regulation or signaling [6, 15, 31, 47].
E-selectin, ICAM1, and VCAM-1 are important in pancreatic cancer, where they participate in the detachment of cells from the primary tumor and contribute to cancer spread [61], and their overexpression in pancreatic adenocarcinomas is associated with a stimulation in tumor growth, increased metastatic ability, and potentially shorter postoperative survival following tumor resection [62].
