FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes the alpha 1 subunit of integrin receptors. This protein heterodimerizes with the beta 1 subunit to form a cell-surface receptor for collagen and laminin. The heterodimeric receptor is involved in cell-cell adhesion and may play a role in inflammation and fibrosis. The alpha 1 subunit contains an inserted (I) von Willebrand factor type I domain which is thought to be involved in collagen binding. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for disruptions in this gene are essentially normal although their kidneys are smaller and more succeptible to injury. [provided by MGI curators]
