ITGB8

A gene on chromosome 7p21.1 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-8 chain partners with the alpha-5 chain to form a fibronectin receptor.
