Summary

The gene codes for a protein, integrin subunit beta 3. It plays a role in cell adhesion as well as cell-surface mediated signalling [R].


Function

(Microbial infection) Integrin ITGAV:ITGB3 acts as a receptor for herpes virus 8/HHV-8 (PubMed:18045938). Integrin ITGAV:ITGB3 acts as a receptor for coxsackievirus A9 (PubMed:7519807). Acts as a receptor for Hantaan virus (PubMed:9618541). Integrin ITGAV:ITGB3 acts as a receptor for cytomegalovirus/HHV-5 (PubMed:15834425). Integrin ITGA5:ITGB3 acts as a receptor for human metapneumovirus (PubMed:24478423). Integrin ITGAV:ITGB3 acts aP05556s a receptor for human parechovirus 1 (PubMed:11160695). Integrin ITGAV:ITGB3 acts as a receptor for west nile virus (PubMed:23658209). In case of HIV-1 infection, the interaction with extracellular viral Tat protein seems to enhance angiogenesis in Kaposi's sarcoma lesions (PubMed:10397733).
