Summaries for SELP Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SELP Gene

  • This gene encodes a 140 kDa protein that is stored in the alpha-granules of platelets and Weibel-Palade bodies of endothelial cells. This protein redistributes to the plasma membrane during platelet activation and degranulation and mediates the interaction of activated endothelial cells or platelets with leukocytes. The membrane protein is a calcium-dependent receptor that binds to sialylated forms of Lewis blood group carbohydrate antigens on neutrophils and monocytes. Alternative splice variants may occur but are not well documented. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SELP Gene

SELP (Selectin P) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SELP include Atopy and Arteriosclerosis Obliterans. Among its related pathways are Response to elevated platelet cytosolic Ca2+ and Spinal Cord Injury. GO annotations related to this gene include carbohydrate binding and calcium-dependent protein binding. An important paralog of this gene is SELE.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SELP Gene

  • Ca(2+)-dependent receptor for myeloid cells that binds to carbohydrates on neutrophils and monocytes. Mediates the interaction of activated endothelial cells or platelets with leukocytes. The ligand recognized is sialyl-Lewis X. Mediates rapid rolling of leukocyte rolling over vascular surfaces during the initial steps in inflammation through interaction with PSGL1.

Tocris Summary for SELP Gene

  • Cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) are a large family of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the binding of a cell to another cell or to the extracellular matrix. They have roles in cell proliferation, differentiation, motility, trafficking, apoptosis and tissue architecture.
