|Function||Integrin alpha-L/beta-2 is a receptor for ICAM1, ICAM2, ICAM3 and ICAM4. Integrin alpha-L/beta-2 is also a receptor for F11R (PubMed:11812992, PubMed:15528364). Involved in a variety of immune phenomena including leukocyte-endothelial cell interaction, cytotoxic T-cell mediated killing, and antibody dependent killing by granulocytes and monocytes. Contributes to natural killer cell cytotoxicity (PubMed:15356110). Involved in leukocyte adhesion and transmigration of leukocytes including T-cells and neutrophils (PubMed:11812992). Required for generation of common lymphoid progenitor cells in bone marrow, indicating a role in lymphopoiesis (By similarity). Integrin alpha-L/beta-2 in association with ICAM3, contributes to apoptotic neutrophil phagocytosis by macrophages (PubMed:23775590).|

ITGAL encodes the integrin alpha L chain. Integrins areheterodimeric integral membrane proteins composed of an alpha chainand a beta chain. This I-domain containing alpha integrin combineswith the beta 2 chain (ITGB2) to form the integrin lymphocytefunction-associated antigen-1 (LFA-1), which is expressed on allleukocytes. LFA-1 plays a central role in leukocyte intercellularadhesion through interactions with its ligands, ICAMs 1-3(intercellular adhesion molecules 1 through 3), and also functionsin lymphocyte costimulatory signaling. Two transcript variantsencoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
