Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Enables amyloid-beta binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cell surface receptor signaling pathway; positive regulation of cell migration; and positive regulation of cellular component organization. Located in basal part of cell and external side of plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; cardiovascular system; eye; and genitourinary system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Behcet's disease; artery disease (multiple); blood platelet disease (multiple); diabetes mellitus (multiple); and von Willebrand's disease (multiple). Orthologous to human ITGA2 (integrin subunit alpha 2).
