Abstract

Recently the lectin-like domain on ELAM-1 (endothelial leukocyte adhesion molecule-1) was shown to recognize a carbohydrate antigen, sialyl Lewis x. In this paper we demonstrate, by a series of inhibition experiments utilizing specific monoclonal antibodies and pure glycolipid preparations, that the sialyl Lewis a antigen serves as a specific ligand for ELAM-1 as well as sialyl Lewis x and plays a significant role in the ELAM-1-mediated binding of human cancer cells to activated endothelial cells.
