Summaries for SELL Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SELL Gene

  • This gene encodes a cell surface adhesion molecule that belongs to a family of adhesion/homing receptors. The encoded protein contains a C-type lectin-like domain, a calcium-binding epidermal growth factor-like domain, and two short complement-like repeats. The gene product is required for binding and subsequent rolling of leucocytes on endothelial cells, facilitating their migration into secondary lymphoid organs and inflammation sites. Single-nucleotide polymorphisms in this gene have been associated with various diseases including immunoglobulin A nephropathy. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009]

GeneCards Summary for SELL Gene

SELL (Selectin L) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SELL include cryptococcosis and arthus reaction. Among its related pathways are Class I MHC mediated antigen processing and presentation and Hemostasis. GO annotations related to this gene include carbohydrate binding and protease binding. An important paralog of this gene is CSMD3.

    • Interaction with PSGL1/SELPLG and PODXL2 is required for promoting recruitment and rolling of leukocytes. This interaction is dependent on the sialyl Lewis X glycan modification of PSGL1 and PODXL2, and tyrosine sulfation modifications of PSGL1. Sulfation on Tyr-51 of PSGL1 is important for L-selectin binding
