Lyphocyte migration in L-selectin-deficient mice. Altered subset migration and aging of the immune system.

Lymphocyte trafficking across high endothelial venules (HEV) of peripheral lymph nodes (PLN) is dependent upon lymphocyte expression of L-selectin. Mice that lack this adhesion molecule provide an opportunity to determine the long-term role of L-selectin-mediated migration in the maintenance of leukocyte subpopulations. HEV in L-selectin-deficient mice were… CONTINUE READING
