Integrin alpha V beta 6,ITGAV&ITGB6
Human ITGAV&ITGB6 Heterodimer Protein, His Tag&Tag Free (IT6-H52E1) is expressed from human 293 cells (HEK293). It contains AA Phe 31 - Val 992 (ITGAV) & Gly 22 - Asn 707 (ITGB6) (Accession # NP_002201.1 (ITGAV) & AAI21179.1 (ITGB6)).
Predicted N-terminus: Phe 31 (ITGAV) & Gly 22 (ITGB6)
Human ITGAV&ITGB6 Heterodimer Protein, His Tag&Tag Free, produced by co-expression of ITGAV and ITGB6, has a calculated MW of 112.9 kDa (ITGAV) and 79.6 kDa (ITGB6). Subunit ITGAV is fused with an acidic tail at the C-terminus and followed by a polyhistidine tag and subunit ITGB6 contains no tag but a basic tail at the C-terminus. The non-reducing (NR) protein migrates as 80-90 kDa (ITGB6) and 130-150 kDa (ITGAV) respectively due to glycosylation.
Less than 1.0 EU per μg by the LAL method.
>95% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in 50 mM Tris, 150 mM NaCl, pH7.5. Normally trehalose is added as protectant before lyophilization.

Integrin alpha V beta 6 is a heterodimer of beta-6 associating with alpha-V. Integrin alpha-V beta-6 is a receptor for fibronectin and cytotactin. It recognizes the sequence R-G-D in its ligands. Internalisation of integrin alpha-V beta-6 via clathrin-mediated endocytosis promotes carcinoma cell invasion. Also, Integrin alpha-V beta-6 acts as a receptor for coxsackievirus A9 and coxsackievirus B1 as well as herpes simplex virus-1/HHV-1. Furthermore, it binds the TGF-beta latency‑associated peptide (LAP) and activates TGF-beta 1 or TGF-beta 3 from large latent complexes. This activation requires interaction with LTBP-1 and fibronectin, and is enhanced by PAR-1.
