FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene is a member of the integrin beta chain family and encodes a single-pass type I membrane protein with a VWFA domain and four cysteine-rich repeats. This protein noncovalently binds to an alpha subunit to form a heterodimeric integrin complex. In general, integrin complexes mediate cell-cell and cell-extracellular matrix interactions and this complex plays a role in human airway epithelial proliferation. Alternatively spliced variants which encode different protein isoforms have been described; however, not all variants have been fully characterized. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for disruption of this gene either die before E11.5 as a result of circulatory abnormalities in the placenta or die within the first for days after birth and display intracerebral hemorrhaging. [provided by MGI curators]
