  • FunctionIntegrin alpha-6/beta-4 is a receptor for laminin. It plays a critical structural role in the hemidesmosome of epithelial cells.
  • Tissue specificityIntegrin alpha-6/beta-4 is predominantly expressed by epithelia. Isoform beta-4D is also expressed in colon and placenta. Isoform beta-4E is also expressed in epidermis, lung, duodenum, heart, spleen and stomach.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in ITGB4 are a cause of epidermolysis bullosa letalis with pyloric atresia (EB-PA) [MIM:226730]; also known as junctional epidermolysis bullosa with pyloric atresia (PA-JEB) or aplasia cutis congenita with gastrointestinal atresia. EB-PA is an autosomal recessive, frequently lethal, epidermolysis bullosa with variable involvement of skin, nails, mucosa, and with variable effects on the digestive system. It is characterized by mucocutaneous fragility, aplasia cutis congenita, and gastrointestinal atresia, which most commonly affects the pylorus. Pyloric atresia is a primary manifestation rather than a scarring process secondary to epidermolysis bullosa.
    Defects in ITGB4 are a cause of generalized atrophic benign epidermolysis bullosa (GABEB) [MIM:226650]. GABEB is a non-lethal, adult form of junctional epidermolysis bullosa characterized by life-long blistering of the skin, associated with hair and tooth abnormalities.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the integrin beta chain family.
    Contains 1 Calx-beta domain.
    Contains 4 fibronectin type-III domains.
    Contains 1 PSI domain.
    Contains 1 VWFA domain.
  • DomainThe fibronectin type-III-like domains bind BPAG1 and plectin and probably also recruit BP230.

  • This image shows a acetone fixed frozen section of BALB/c mouse intestine. The basal layer stains intensely (arrow).
  • Immunohistochemistry (Frozen sections) analysis of BALB/c mouse frozen intestine. Right: Integrin beta 4 labeled with ab25254 followed by Goat Anti-Rat IgG(H+L), Mouse ads-BIOT, and Streptavidin-FITC. Left: Isotype Control, Rat IgG2a-UNLB followed by Goat Anti-Rat IgG(H+L), Mouse ads-BIOT, and Streptavidin-FITC. Blue - DAPI

  • ab25254 staining mouse small intestine tissue sections by IHC-Fr.  Sections were PFA fixed and blocked in 3% BSA for 1 hour at 37°C prior to incubatition with the primary antibody, diluted 1/500, for 12 hours at 4°C.  A Cy3® conjugated goat anti-rat antibody, diluted 1/200, was used as the secondary.

  • ab25254 staining Intergrin beta 4 in mouse colon cells by Flow Cytometry. The sample was incubated with the primary antibody (1/100) for 30 minutes at 20°C. An undiluted Alexa Fluor® 647-conjugated goat anti-rat IgG polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody. Gating Strategy: Exclude small cells/debris.
