This book represents the most current, comprehensive, and authoritative study of integrins on the market today. It provides an overview of the diverse biological functions of integrins, including: The structure and functions of integrin cytoplasmic domains, the role of b2 integrins in leukocyte adhesion, the role of platelet membrane fibrinogen receptor glycoprotein IIb-IIIa (aIIbb3) in thrombosis and hemostasis, the functions of aV integrin family, the role of integrins in signal transduction, the role of integrins in carcinoma cells, the role of integrins in internalization of microbial pathogens through the binding of Yersinia pseudotuberculosis invasin protein, the role of integrins in the skin, the integrin function in early vertebrate development using amphibian embryos.
