FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] Integrins are heterodimeric integral membrane proteins composed of an alpha chain and a beta chain. This gene encodes an I-domain-containing alpha integrin that undergoes post-translational cleavage in the extracellular domain, yielding disulfide-linked heavy and light chains. In combination with the beta 7 integrin, this protein forms the E-cadherin binding integrin known as the human mucosal lymphocyte-1 antigen. This protein is preferentially expressed in human intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes (IEL), and in addition to a role in adhesion, it may serve as an accessory molecule for IEL activation.

PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for a targeted null mutation exhibit reductions in the numbers of intestinal and vaginal intraepithelial lymphocytes and of T lymphocytes of the lamina propria. [provided by MGI curators]
