    The fibronectin synergy site re-enforces cell adhesion and mediates a crosstalk between integrin classes

    Maria Benito-Jardón et al.
    The fibronectin synergy site is only required in vivo when forces exceed or αvβ3 integrin levels fall below certain thresholds.

    Implications of the differing roles of the β1 and β3 transmembrane and cytoplasmic domains for integrin function

    Zhenwei Lu et al.
    Diverse biophysical properties of β1 and β3 integrin transmembrane and cytoplasmic domains result in distinct mechanisms of integrin activation and function.

    Activated αIIbβ3 on platelets mediates flow-dependent NETosis via SLC44A2

    Adela Constantinescu-Bercu et al.
    The interaction between activated αIIbβ3 on platelets and SLC44A2 on circulating neutrophils facilitates neutrophil capture and drives flow-dependent NETosis.

    Collagen-rich omentum is a premetastatic niche for integrin α2-mediated peritoneal metastasis

    Yen-Lin Huang et al.
    Inhibition of ITGA2-mediated cancer cell-collagen interaction or targeting focal adhesion kinase activity may present an opportunity for therapeutic intervention of metastatic spread in ovarian cancer.

    Integrin alpha11 is an Osteolectin receptor and is required for the maintenance of adult skeletal bone mass

    Bo Shen et al.
    Integrin a11 is identified as an Osteolectin receptor, revealing a new mechanism for adult skeletal bone maintenance in which Osteolectin/a11b1 signaling promotes bone formation by activating the Wnt pathway.

    Evolutionarily distant I domains can functionally replace the essential ligand-binding domain of Plasmodium TRAP

    Dennis Klug et al.
    Exchange of the I domain in the Plasmodium surface protein TRAP against evolutionary distant I domains rescues infectivity of sporozoites.

    Heart of glass anchors Rasip1 at endothelial cell-cell junctions to support vascular integrity

    Bart-Jan de Kreuk et al.
    The proteins Heart of Glass (HEG1) and Rasip1 are both essential for cardiovascular development; and directly bind to each other to guide Rasip1 to endothelial cell junctions to support vascular integrity.

    Heparan sulfates are critical regulators of the inhibitory megakaryocyte-platelet receptor G6b-B

    Timo Vögtle et al.
    Heparan sulfates in the vessel wall bind and regulate signaling from the megakaryocyte/platelet-specific inhibitory receptor G6b-B, a critical regulator of platelet homeostasis.

    Kindlin-2 cooperates with talin to activate integrins and induces cell spreading by directly binding paxillin

    Marina Theodosiou et al.
    Kindlin-2 co-operates with talin to activate fibronectin-binding integrins on fibroblasts and subsequently induces cell spreading by recruiting paxillin to small, peripheral nascent adhesions.
