Leukocyte capture and rolling are mediated by selectins expressed on leukocytes (L-selectin) and the vascular endothelium (P- and E-selectin). To investigate the role of core 2 beta1-6-N-glucosaminyltransferase (C2GlcNAcT-I) for synthesis of functional selectin ligands in vivo, leukocyte rolling flux and velocity were studied in venules of untreated and(More)
P-selectin glycoprotein ligand-1 (PSGL-1) mediates rolling of leukocytes on P-selectin-expressing endothelial cells under shear flow. Function-blocking monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against mouse and human PSGL-1 recognize an anionic segment at the N-terminus of PSGL-1. High affinity interaction of PSGL-1 with P-selectin requires sulfation of tyrosines 46,(More)
