Cell surface expression of lysosome-associated membrane proteins (LAMPs) in scleroderma: relationship of lamp2 to disease duration, anti-Sc170 antibodies, serum interleukin-8, and soluble interleukin-2 receptor levels.


Lysosome-associated membrane proteins (LAMPs) are integral transmembrane proteins densely expressed on lysosomes which can be shuttled to the plasma membrane during cell activation. The objective of this study was to examine the expression of LAMPs on the cell surface of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) derived from patients with scleroderma… (More)
