Abstract:Integrins are alpha beta heterodimers that play a major role in cell-cell contacts and in interactions between cells and extracellular matrices. Identification of structural domains that are critical for the expression of such receptors at the cell surface in a functional conformation is one of the major issues that has not yet been resolved. In the present study, the role of the cytoplasmic and transmembrane domains of each of the subunits has been examined using platelet GPIIb/IIIa as a prototypic integrin. …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
