Integrins are heterodimeric cell adhesion molecules comprised of alpha and beta subunits that have been implicated in the regulation of neuronal migration, differentiation, and process outgrowth. They mediate both cell-extracellular matrix and cell-cell interactions. The integrin alpha 8 beta 1 is a receptor for fibronectin, tenascin, and vitronectin that has been localized to axonal tracts and several types of non-neuronal cells in chick embryos and to smooth muscle cells in adult mammalian… CONTINUE READING
