CD61 is a 110 kD integrin β chain also known as β3 integrin or gpIIIa. It associates with the integrin αv chain (CD51) to form the vitronectin receptor. In addition, CD61 can associate with the integrin αIIb chain (CD41) to form the gpIIb/IIIa complex. CD61 is expressed on platelets, megakaryocytes, endothelium, smooth muscle, a subset of B cells, myeloid cells, osteoclasts, and mast cells. CD61, in conjunction with CD41 or CD51, mediates adhesion to fibronectin, fibrinogen, vitronectin, thrombospondin, and von Willebrand factor. Leukocyte-endothelial adhesion is mediated by the binding of αv/β3 integrin or vitronectin receptor to CD31 (PECAM-1).Product Details
