  Domain Name: vWA_integrins_alpha_
Integrins are a class of adhesion receptors that link the extracellular matrix to the cytoskeleton and cooperate with growth factor receptors to promote celll survival, cell cycle progression and cell migration. Integrins consist of an alpha and a beta sub-unit. Each sub-unit has a large extracellular portion, a single transmembrane segment and a short cytoplasmic domain. The N-terminal domains of the alpha and beta subunits associate to form the integrin headpiece, which contains the ligand binding site, whereas the C-terminal segments traverse the plasma membrane and mediate interaction with the cytoskeleton and with signalling proteins.The VWA domains present in the alpha subunits of integrins seem to be a chordate specific radiation of the gene family being found only in vertebrates. They mediate protein-protein interactions.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.

Tips:
 If you've navigated here from a protein, hovering over a position on the weblogo will display the corresponding protein position for that domain position.

 The histograms below the weblogo indicate mutations found on the domain. Red is for disease (OMIM) and blue is for SNPs.

 Functional Features are displayed as orange boxes under the histograms. You can choose which features are displayed in the box below.
