    ..Our results demonstrate that neutrophils cooperatively signal through PSGL-1 and CXCR2 to promote DVT. ..

    ..These data demonstrate that spectrin and actin networks regulate CD44 clustering and suggest that ankyrin enhances CD44-mediated neutrophil rolling and signaling. ..
  3. McEver R. Selectins: initiators of leucocyte adhesion and signalling at the vascular wall. Cardiovasc Res. 2015;107:331-9 pubmed publisher
    ..In vivo, selectin-mediated adhesion and signalling likely contributes to atherosclerosis, arterial and deep vein thrombosis, ischaemia-reperfusion injury, and other cardiovascular diseases. ..

    ..They further show that neutrophil arrest requires talin recruitment to and activation of integrins. However, although neutrophil slow rolling requires talin recruitment to integrins, talin-mediated integrin activation is dispensable. ..

    ..Therefore, divergent sequences in a short promoter mediate most of the functionally significant differences in expression of human and murine P-selectin in vivo. ..

    ..P-selectin expressed by human SELP is atherogenic in Apoe(-/-) mice, suggesting that P-selectin contributes to atherogenesis in humans. ..

    ..Preassociation of these glycoproteins with rafts is required for signaling but not for movement to uropods. ..

    ..Cells expressing E-selectinE88D rolled but detached faster. Our data support a two-state model for selectins in which Glu-88 must engage ligand to trigger allostery that stabilizes the high affinity state under force. ..
