Drosophila integrins and their ligands

Curr Opin Cell Biol. 1994 Oct;6(5):734-9. doi: 10.1016/0955-0674(94)90101-5.

Abstract

The major advance during the past year was the identification of ligands for two of the previously known position-specific integrins in Drosophila. At the same time, two new Drosophila integrin subunits (one alpha and one beta) were discovered, and significant progress was made on developmental genetic analyses of integrin functions, shedding light on the roles of integrins in Drosophila development.
