ITGB5(redirected from OTTHUMP00000215272)
ITGB5A 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.
