collagen, type I, alpha 2; Type I collagen is a member of group I collagen (fibrillar forming collagen)
ITGA2 [ENSP00000296585]
 
integrin, alpha 2 (CD49B, alpha 2 subunit of VLA-2 receptor); Integrin alpha-2/beta-1 is a receptor for laminin, collagen, collagen C-propeptides, fibronectin and E-cadherin. It recognizes the proline-hydroxylated sequence G-F-P-G-E-R in collagen. It is responsible for adhesion of platelets and other cells to collagens, modulation of collagen and collagenase gene expression, force generation and organization of newly synthesized extracellular matrix
