Target (abbrv.) P-Selectin
Target (full name) P-Selectin
Somalogic ID (Sequence ID) SL000560 (4154-57_2)
Entrez Gene Symbol SELP
UniProt ID P16109
UniProt Comment
  • 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.
Biomarker applications (based on IPA annotation)
  • efficacy
  • safety
  • unspecified application

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs6136) and 1 proxy variant(s) that is/are in linkage disequilibrium r2 ≥ 0.8. Linkage disequilibrium is based on data from the 1000 Genomes Project, phase 3 version 5, European population and was retrieved using SNiPA's Block Annotation feature.
