ITGA10(redirected from integrin alpha-10)
ITGA10A gene on chromosome 1q21 that encodes an integrin alpha chain protein which, like all integrins, forms a heterodimer with a beta chain, thereby participating in cell adhesion and cell surface-mediated signalling. Alpha 10 binds to a beta-1 chain, forming a collagen type-II-binding integrin, which is expressed in cartilage.
