Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
PSGL, CD162, SELPLG, CLA, CD162, PSGL1, Selectin P ligand.
PSGL-1 (P-Selectin glycoprotein ligand, also designated CD162), exists as a disulfide-linked homodimer. PSGL-1 is a type 1 membrane protein that localizes on the tips of microvilli of leukocytes. Its extracellular domain is rich in serines, threonines and prolines, and includes a series of 15 and 16 decameric repeats in HL-60 and U-937 cells, and human leukocytes, respectively. Although PSGL-1 appears to be the sole receptor for P-Selectin on human hematopoietic cells, it also interacts with E-Selectin through a unique binding site. In order to bind PSGL-1 to either E-Selectin or P-Selectin, PSGL-1 must be sialylated and fucosylated. PSLG-1 is a mucin-like molecule, much like leukosialin (CD43), CD164 and CD34. These proteins belong to an emerging family of cell adhesion receptors called sialomucins, which transduce negative signals in hematopoietic cells.
