Adhesion properties of adhesion-regulating molecule 1 protein on endothelial cells

Febs Journal 272 (8) 1833-1844

Abstract :

Numerous adhesion molecules have been described, and the molecular mechanisms of lymphocyte trafficking across the endothelium is starting to be elucidated. Identification of the molecules involved in the organoselectivity of this process would help in the targeting of drug therapy to specific tissues. Adhesion-regulating molecule-1 (ARM-1) is an adhesion-regulating molecule previously identified on T cells. It does not belong to any known families of adhesion molecules. In this study, we show the presence of ARM-1 in endothelial cells, the adhesion partners of lymphocytes.
