Cloning and chromosomal localization of a novel gene-encoding a human beta 2-integrin alpha subunit. Academic Article uri icon


  • We isolated a partial genomic clone encoding ITGAD, a novel beta 2-integrin alpha subunit. The ITGAD gene is highly homologous to the three previously known alpha subunit-encoding genes, that compose the beta 2 integrin family, in deduced amino acid sequence, intron/exon structure and mapping location (chromosome 16p11).
