Leukosialin, also called CD43 or sialophorin, is a major sialoglycoprotein expressed widely in various leukocytes (granulocytes, monocytes/macrophages and T-lymphocytes). Leukosialin is heavily glycosylated by O-linked oligosaccharides (70-80 oligosaccharides/molecule) and the structures of those O-glycans are characteristic to each cell lineage and… CONTINUE READING
