Summaries for SELPLG Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SELPLG Gene

  • This gene encodes a glycoprotein that functions as a high affinity counter-receptor for the cell adhesion molecules P-, E- and L- selectin expressed on myeloid cells and stimulated T lymphocytes. As such, this protein plays a critical role in leukocyte trafficking during inflammation by tethering of leukocytes to activated platelets or endothelia expressing selectins. This protein requires two post-translational modifications, tyrosine sulfation and the addition of the sialyl Lewis x tetrasaccharide (sLex) to its O-linked glycans, for its high-affinity binding activity. Aberrant expression of this gene and polymorphisms in this gene are associated with defects in the innate and adaptive immune response. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.[provided by RefSeq, Apr 2011]

GeneCards Summary for SELPLG Gene

SELPLG (Selectin P Ligand) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SELPLG include human granulocytic anaplasmosis and ehrlichiosis. Among its related pathways are Hemostasis and amb2 Integrin signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include receptor binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SELPLG Gene

  • A SLe(x)-type proteoglycan, which through high affinity, calcium-dependent interactions with E-, P- and L-selectins, mediates rapid rolling of leukocytes over vascular surfaces during the initial steps in inflammation. Critical for the initial leukocyte capture.

    412 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    43201 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Homodimer; disulfide-linked. Interaction with P-, E- and L-selectins, through their lectin/EGF domains, is required for promoting recruitment and rolling of leukocytes. These interactions require sialyl Lewis X glycan modification but there is a differing dependence for tyrosine sulfations. Sulfation on Tyr-51 of PSGL1 is most important for high affinity L-selectin/SELL binding while P-selectin/SELP requires sulfation on Tyr-48. E-selectin/SELE binds with much lower affinity and requires the sLe(x) epitope, but apparantly not tyrosine sulfation. Dimerization appears not to be required for P-selectin/SELP binding. Interacts with SNX20. Interacts with MSN and SYK; mediates the activation of SYK by SELPLG.

Post-translational modifications for SELPLG Gene

  • Displays complex, core-2, sialylated and fucosylated O-linked oligosaccharides, at least some of which appear to contain poly-N-acetyllactosamine with varying degrees of substitution. Mainly disialylated or neutral forms of the core-2 tetrasaccharide, Galbeta1-->4GlcNAcbeta1-->6(Galbeta1-->3)GalNAcOH. The GlcN:GalN ratio is approximately 2:1 and the Man:Fuc ratio 3:5. Contains about 14% fucose with alpha-1,3 linkage present in two forms: One species is a disialylated, monofucosylated glycan, and the other, a monosialylated, trifucosylated glycan with a polylactosamine backbone. The fucosylated forms carry the Lewis antigen and are important for interaction with selectins and for functioning in leukocyte rolling. The modification containing the sialyl Lewis X glycan is on Thr-57. No sulfated O-glycans. Some N-glycosylation.
  • Sulfation, in conjunction with the SLe(x)-containing glycan, is necessary for P- and L-selectin binding. High affinity P-selectin binding has a preferred requirement for the isomer sulfated on both Tyr-48 and Tyr-51, whereas L-selectin binding requires predominantly sulfation on Tyr-51 with sulfation on Tyr-48 playing only a minor role. These sulfations play an important role in L- and P-selectin-mediated neutrophil recruitment, and leukocyte rolling.
  • Ubiquitination at Lys386
  • Glycosylation at Thr57, Asn65, Asn111, Ser287, Ser289, Ser290, Thr292, and Asn302
  • Modification sites at PhosphoSitePlus
