UniProt Comment
  • Cell surface adhesion protein. Mediates the adherence of lymphocytes to endothelial cells of high endothelial venules in peripheral lymph nodes. Promotes initial tethering and rolling of leukocytes in endothelia.
Biomarker applications (based on IPA annotation)
  • efficacy
  • Cell surface interactions at the vascular wall
  • Immunoregulatory interactions between a Lymphoid and a non-Lymphoid cell
Pathway Studio
  • Leukocyte Adhesion to Endothelial Cell

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs12938) and 4 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.
