Integrin alpha 6 beta 1,ITGA6&ITGB1
Human ITGA6&ITGB1 Heterodimer Protein, His Tag&Tag Free (IT1-H52W7) is expressed from human 293 cells (HEK293). It contains AA Phe 24 - Gly 1012 (ITGA6) & Gln 21 - Asp 728 (ITGB1) (Accession # P23229-2 (ITGA6) & P05556-1 (ITGB1)).
Predicted N-terminus: Phe 24 (ITGA6) & Gln 21 (ITGB1)
Human ITGA6&ITGB1 Heterodimer Protein, His Tag&Tag Free, produced by co-expression of ITGA6 and ITGB1, has a calculated MW of 116.8 kDa (ITGA6) and 83.7 kDa (ITGB1). Subunit ITGA6 is fused with an acidic tail at the C-terminus and followed by a polyhistidine tag and subunit ITGB1 contains no tag but a basic tail at the C-terminus. The non-reducing (NR) protein migrates as 140-150 kDa (ITGA6) and 100-118 kDa (ITGB1) respectively due to glycosylation.
Less than 1.0 EU per μg by the LAL method.
>90% 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 6 beta 1, also called platelet glycoprotein GPIc-IIa, is a receptor for laminin on platelets. The ITGA6 protein product is the integrin alpha chain alpha 6. Integrins are integral cell-surface proteins composed of an alpha chain and a beta chain. A given chain may combine with multiple partners resulting in different integrins. For example, alpha 6 may combine with beta 4 in the integrin referred to as TSP180, or with beta 1 in the integrin VLA-6. Integrins are known to participate in cell adhesion as well as cell-surface mediated signalling. ITGA6 has been shown to interact with TSPAN4 and GIPC1.
