Lymphocyte Homing

  • Lymphocytes isolated from nodes able to “home” back to original node when reinjected

  • Indicative of lymphocytes ability to bind to specific endothelium and invade into stroma


How was this studied
How was this studied?

  • Lymph nodes sliced to reveal high endothelial cell sin postcapillary venules (HEV)

  • Lymphocytes bound specifically to HEV

  • Competitive inhibitors

    • L-fucose @ 150 mM, fucoidin (sulfated polysaccharides) @ 5 µg/ml

  • Produced blocking antibodies

    • MEL-14 (L-selectin) that binds to carbohydrate-ligand (addressin) on endothelium



Selectins1
Selectins

  • 3 types thus far: L-, E-, P-selectin

    • L-selectin expressed on lymphocytes

    • P- and E-selectin expressed on activated endothelial cells

  • All bind sialylated Lewis X


Addressins
Addressins

  • Mucin-like endothelial glycoproteins

    • Leukocytes express P-selectin glycoprotein ligand-1 and E-selectin ligand-1

    • Activated endothelium expresses ligands for L-selectin (GlyCAM-1, CD34, MAdCAM-1)


Integrin participation
Integrin participation

  • Leukocytes express a4ß7 and aLß2 (LFA-1) integrins (among others)

  • Antibodies against integrin heterodimers inhibit leukocyte-endothelial interactions

  • Shear flow models were necessary to define relative roles of selectins and integrins




Selectins and integrins act sequentially
Selectins and integrins act sequentially

  • Selectins mediate low affinity, fast on-off rates, leads to rolling (P-selectin binds to GlyCAM-1)

  • Induces activation of integrin (clustering, cytoplasmic domain modification) enabling integrin to bind endothelium (LFA-1 binds to ICAM-1)

  • Integrins mediate high affinity, stable adhesion





Knock out phenotypes
Knock-out phenotypes

  • Leukocyte adhesion deficiency 1 (LAD1) in humans is due to defective integrin ß2, elevated leukocytes in circulation due to failure to extravagate, no pus

    • LAD1 leukocytes still roll (selectin based)

  • FucTVII knockout produces LAD1 phenotype by preventing ligand synthesis on addressins

  • P-selectin, E-selectin null unable to roll/extravagate
