P-Selectin Proteins, Antibodies, cDNA Clones, ELISA Kits Research Reagents

SELP (Selectin P) is a protein coding gene located on human chromosome 1q24.2. SELP is also known as CD62, GRMP, PSEL, CD62P, GMP140, LECAM3 and PADGEM. The human SELP gene encodes a 90834 Da protein containing 830 amino acids. The SELP protein is broadly expressed in urinary bladder, appendix and other tissues. Among its related pathways are amb2 Integrin signaling and Cell surface interactions at the vascular wall. SELP is related to carbohydrate binding and calcium-dependent protein binding. SELE is an important paralog of SELP gene. SELP is associated with some diseases, including Intermittent Claudication and Arteriosclerosis Obliterans.

        P-Selectin Background

        P selectin (SELP) is a 140kDa protein that is stored in the alpha-granules of platelets and Weibel-Palade bodies of endothelial cells. SELP mediates rapid rolling of leukocyte rolling over vascular surfaces during the initial steps in inflammation through interaction with PSGL1. P selectin is a cell adhesion molecule on the surface of activated endothelial cells. Cellular adhesion molecules are a large family of proteins that attach the cytoskeleton and intracellular signaling cascades with the extracellular environment. SELP is a calcium-dependent receptor for myeloid cells that binds to sialylated forms of Lewis blood group carbohydrate antigens on neutrophils and monocytes. This protein redistributes to the plasma membrane during platelet activation and degranulation and mediates the interaction of activated endothelial cells or platelets with leukocytes.
