Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits integrin binding activity. Involved in integrin-mediated signaling pathway; stress fiber assembly; and transforming growth factor beta receptor signaling pathway. Localizes to several cellular components, including focal adhesion; glutamatergic synapse; and integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; cardiovascular system; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; and genitourinary system. Orthologous to human ITGB5 (integrin subunit beta 5).
