ITGA6

ITGA6

A gene on chromosome 2q31.1 that encodes an integrin alpha chain protein which, like all integrins, forms a heterodimer with a beta chain, thereby participating in an array of cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions, playing a major role in cell migration, organ and tissue development, differentiation and metastases. Alpha 6 binds to a beta-1 chain, forming the VLA-6 integrin, a receptor for laminin on platelets, or with beta 4 to form TSP180, a receptor for laminin in epithelial cells, which plays a critical structural role in hemidesmosome.

JEB has a proven familial predisposition and is caused by mutations in the ITGA6, ITGB4, LAMA3, LAMB3, LAMC2, and COL17A1 genes [1].
The target genes were selected for further validation with qRT-PCR, and we found that the mRNA expression of 8 genes (PSMB5, ITGA6, MYCBP2, TCF7L2, UBE2V2, HIPK1, UBE2D2, and KANSL1) were downregulated in Adv-infected patients compared to healthy controls (Figure 5).
For the qRT-PCR of human COL4A3, ITGA6, and ITGB1, one microgram of total RNA was reverse transcribed into cDNA (ImProm 11 Reverse Transcription System, A3800, Promega, Madison, WI) with Oligo(dT) 15 Primer following manufacturer's instructions.
(148) The miR-29s also target adhesion molecule integrin, alpha 6 (ITGA6).
The lens expresses the laminin receptors [alpha]6[beta]1, [alpha]6[beta]4, and integrin and mice lacking either both the itga3 and itga6 or itgb1 genes from the lens develop profound lens abnormalities including loss of the lens epithelium and fiber cell defects [5, 65-67].

Interestingly, several genes were differentially up-regulated by DDT compared with [E.sub.2], including Fas ligand (FASLG), integrin alpha 6 (ITGA6), and vascular endothelial growth factor A [VEGFA; an important factor in cellular angiogenic control mechanisms and differentiation (Zhang et al.
Another gene called ITGA6 that is important for cell growth, movement and survival could also be a potential drug target.

From the genes that are upregulated in female and downregulated in male mice, we found that more than 20 genes (Cp, Vdr, Pah, Nox4, Cyp2e1, Cyp1a2, Mef2c, F5, Pon1, Itga6, Umod, Pso, Umod, Rgs5, Hamp, Pter, Cyp2c29, Cyp3a11, Aip-1, Bhmt, Fbp1, Prkg2, Sult1a1, Scp2, Slc10a1, G6pc, Ass1, and Kap) are connected to collagen.
Additionally, mild attenuation of ITGA2 and ITGA6 expression was observed in the Npnt-treated group.
