Integrin alpha M (ITGAM) is one protein subunit that forms the heterodimeric integrin alpha-M beta-2 (α Mβ 2) molecule, also known as (Mac-1) or macrophage-1 antigen (CR3). complement receptor 3 ITGAM is also known as CR3A, and [1 ] cluster of differentiation molecule 11B (CD11B). The second chain of α Mβ 2 is the common integrin β 2 subunit known as CD18, and integrin α Mβ 2 thus belongs to the β 2 subfamily (or leukocyte) integrins. [2 ]
Mβ 2 is expressed on the surface of many leukocytes involved in the innate immune system, including monocytes, granulocytes, macrophages, and natural killer cells. It mediates inflammation by regulating leukocyte [1 ] adhesion and migration and has been implicated in several immune processes such as phagocytosis, cell-mediated cytotoxicity, chemotaxis and cellular activation. It is involved in the [1 ] complement system due to its capacity to bind inactivated complement component 3b (iC3b). The ITGAM (alpha) subunit of integrin α [3 ] Mβ 2 is directly involved in causing the adhesion and spreading of cells but cannot mediate cellular migration without the presence of the β2 (CD18) subunit. [1 ]
In genomewide association studies, single nucleotide polymorphisms in ITGAM had the strongest association with
systemic lupus erythematosus, with an odds ratio of 1.65 for the T allele of rs9888739 and lupus. [4 ] [5 ]
histopathology, immunohistochemistry with antibodies against CD11B is frequently used to identify macrophages and microglia.
