Job-splitting among integrins

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate


How different integrin receptors for the same extracellular ligand transduce distinct cellular responses is unclear. The characterization of the class-specific adhesomes of β 1 and α V integrins now shows that whereas α V integrins promote unbranched actin polymerization, β 1 integrins induce myosin-II-dependent contractility, and both integrin subtypes synergistically mediate rigidity sensing.
