Protein phosphatase 1 associates with the integrin alphaIIb subunit and regulates signaling.

Regulation of integrin activation occurs by specific interactions among cytoplasmic proteins and integrin alpha and beta cytoplasmic tails. We report that the catalytic subunit of protein phosphatase 1 (PP1c) constitutively associates with the prototypic integrin alphaIIbbeta3 in platelets and in cell lines overexpressing the integrin. PP1c binds directly… CONTINUE READING
