Analysis of selectin binding to immobilized glycosphingolipids under flow conditions

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Selectins are cell-surface proteins capable of mediating tethering and rolling of leukocytes to the inflamed vessel wall. Further evidence that glycosphingolipids constitute major ligands for E- but not P-selectin was studied. CHO-E cells tethered extensively and formed slow rolling interactions with the immobilized glycophingolipid at 1 dyn/cm2. The step size between successive bond releases from the 2,3-sLex-ceramide conjugate was estimated using a stochastic model of cell rolling. Controlled detachment assays further revealed-much stronger adhesive interactions of E- than P-selectin with 2,3-sLex glycosphingolipids.
