Integrin-associated proteins as potential therapeutic targets.

Abstract

SUMMARY Integrins are adhesion receptors important for hematopoiesis, leukocyte trafficking, and formation of immunological synapses; hence, they may provide targets for therapeutic intervention in leukocyte-driven pathologies. Blocking integrin-ligand binding is one strategy for inhibiting integrins; however, a complete loss of integrin function can lead… (More)
