receptors, very late antigen

members of the integrin family appearing late after t-cell activation. They are a family of proteins initially identified at the surface of stimulated t-cells, but now identified on a variety of cell types. At least six vla antigens have been identified as heterodimeric adhesion receptors consisting of a single common beta-subunit and different alpha-subunits.
