Naïve T Cells Re-Distribute to the Lungs of Selectin Ligand Deficient Mice

BACKGROUND Selectin mediated tethering represents one of the earliest steps in T cell extravasation into lymph nodes via high endothelial venules and is dependent on the biosynthesis of sialyl Lewis X (sLe(x)) ligands by several glycosyltransferases, including two fucosyltransferases, fucosyltransferase-IV and -VII. Selectin mediated binding also plays a… CONTINUE READING
