Related to L-selectin: E-selectin


A gene on chromosome 1q23-q25 that encodes l-selectin, a cell surface adhesion/homing receptor required for binding and rolling of leukocytes on endothelial cells, facilitating leukocyte migration into secondary lymphoid organs and inflammation sites.

An adhesion molecule that triggers off the interaction between leukocytes and blood vessel endothelium. It is shed from the surface membrane of haematopoietic cells and circulates in the blood as a functional receptor.

We analyzed 13 markers which could be associated with preterm delivery IGFBP-1, IGFBP-2, BDNF, L-Selectin, E-Selectin, ICAM-1, PECAM, VCAM-1, MIP-1d, MIP-3b, Eotaxin-1, Eotaxin-2, and BLC, and we estimated their usefulness as markers for differentiation between threatened preterm delivery, preterm delivery, and false preterm delivery.

In the present study, we investigated the co-expression of CD25 and CD62L (adhesion molecule, L-selectin) of bovine [CD4.sup.+] and [CD8.sup.+] T cells in response to LPS challenge in order to compare the activation statuses of other cell surface markers.

The mechanisms by which the concentrations of soluble adhesion molecules increase in the plasma during infection with gram-negative bacilli includes interaction of endotoxin through membrane-specific endotoxin receptors, such as L-selectin and CD13/CD14, which cause increased production of adhesions molecules like E-selectin.
