    Talins and kindlins bind to the integrin b3 cytoplasmic tail and both are required for effective activation of integrin aIIbb3 and resulting high-affinity ligand binding in platelets. However, binding of the talin head domain alone to b3 is sufficient to activate purified integrin aIIbb3 in...

    Integrin receptors provide a dynamic, tightly-regulated link between the extracellular matrix (or cellular counter-receptors) and intracellular cytoskeletal and signalling networks, enabling cells to sense and respond to their chemical and physical environment. Talins and kindlins, two families...

    Regulated activation of integrins is critical for cell adhesion, motility and tissue homeostasis. Talin and kindlins activate ?1-integrins, but the counteracting inhibiting mechanisms are poorly defined. We identified SHARPIN as an important inactivator of ?1-integrins in an RNAi screen. SHARPIN...

    Integrin-mediated platelet adhesion and aggregation are essential for sealing injured blood vessels and preventing blood loss, and excessive platelet aggregation can initiate arterial thrombosis, causing heart attacks and stroke. To ensure that platelets aggregate only at injury sites, integrins...

    Kindlin-3 is a member of the kindlin family of focal adhesion proteins which bind to integrin beta-chain cytoplasmic domains to regulate integrin function. In contrast to kindlin-1 and kindlin-2 proteins, kindlin-3 is expressed mainly in the hematopoietic system. Mutations in kindlin-3 result in...

    Cell adhesion and migration depend on engagement of extracellular matrix ligands by integrins. Integrin activation is dynamically regulated by interactions of various cytoplasmic proteins, such as filamin and integrin activators, talin and kindlin, with the cytoplasmic tail of the integrin β...

    Kindlin proteins represent a newly discovered family of evolutionarily conserved FERM domain-containing proteins. This family includes three highly conserved proteins: Kindlin-1, Kindlin-2 and Kindlin-3. All three Kindlin proteins are associated with focal adhesions and are involved in integrin...

  • Talin's second persona. Tepass, Ulrich; Godt, Dorothea // Nature Cell Biology;May2005, Vol. 7 Issue 5, p443 

    Talin is a core component of the integrin adhesion complex. It is now shown that talin also regulates transcription, an activity that is apparently independent of its interaction with integrins. Talin represses the expression of Drosophila melanogaster DE-cadherin through an unknown molecular...

    Talin serves an essential function during integrin-mediated adhesion in linking integrins to actin via the intracellular adhesion complex. In addition, the N-terminal head domain of talin regulates the affinity of integrins for their ECM-ligands, a process known as inside-out activation. We...
