Green List (high evidence)

Evidence Summary from Illumina curation team: ITGB3 encodes integrin beta-3 (CD61), a member of the integrin family of transmembrane proteins. Integrins are heterodimeric transmembrane proteins involved in cell adhesion and migration, and organization of the cytoskeleton. Integrin b3 has been shown to act as a coreceptor for many viruses including Herpes virus 8/HHV-8, Coxsackievirus A9, Hantaan virus, Cytomegalovirus/HHV-5, and West Nile virus (Gavrilovskaya et al. 2008; Roivainen et al. 1994; Garrigues et al 2008; Schmidt et al. 2013; Wang et al. 2005). Viruses such as the arena virus LASV and Dengue virus may manipulate and increase the expression level of ITGB3 (Zapata et al, 2013; In vitro exposure of human PBMC to a pathogenic arenavirus (LASV) increases the expression of ITGB3 (Zapata et al, 2013; Noisakran et al, 2012). Valdebenito et al. 2019 recently reported a genetic single-nucleotide polymorphism associated with infection susceptibility to Andes virus in a Chilean population.
