JAM-A Seems to play a role in epithelial tight junction formation. Appears early in primordial forms of cell junctions and recruits PARD3. The association of the PARD6-PARD3 complex may prevent the interaction of PARD3 with JAM1, thereby preventing tight junction assembly. Plays a role in regulating monocyte transmigration involved in integrity of epithelial barrier. Ligand for integrin alpha-L/beta-2 involved in memory T-cell and neutrophil transmigration. Involved in platelet activation. (Microbial infection) Acts as a receptor for Mammalian reovirus sigma-1. (Microbial infection) Acts as a receptor for Human Rotavirus strain Wa. Belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily. Expressed in endothelium, epithelium and leukocytes (at protein level). 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported.
