mucin-like glycoproteins

Tuesday 7 February 2006

Mucin-like glycoproteins, such as heparan sulfate, serve as ligands for the leukocyte adhesion molecule called CD44. These glycoproteins are found in the extracellular matrix and on cell surfaces.

Examples

- GlyCAM-1
- PSGL-1 (SELPLG)
- ESL-1 (GLG1)
- CD34
- heparan sulfate
