Integrin αvβ6, an important target

for the layout of many pharmaceutical companies


Integrin αvβ6 is a heterodimer composed of αv and β6 integrin subunits and is expressed only in epithelial cells. Through its function as a receptor and activity regulator of TGF-β1, it can maintain the quiescence of epithelial stem cells or moderate immune responses respectively.

Integrin αvβ6 has many functions in physiological processes and diseases, such as:

  • Reduce lung inflammatory response;
  • Maintain periodontal health and tooth enamel;
  • Maintain epithelial barrier function and inhibit intestinal inflammation;
  • Participate in hair development, maintain hair follicle stem cell quiescence, and retain epidermal immune cells;
  • Mediates epithelial-mesenchymal cross-talk in wound healing and fibrosis;
  • Its high expression is associated with epithelial cancers, such as lung, breast, colon, gastric, endometrial, ovarian, liver, salivary gland, skin, and cervical and oral mucosal cancer.
