Rat P-Selectin quantitates rat P-Selectin in serum, plasma, supernatant. The assay will exclusively recognize both natural and recombinant rat P-Selectin.P-selectin (Selectin P, GMP-140, LECAM3, CD62 antigen-like family member) is a 140 kDa type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein, and is one of the most commonly studied proteins that regulate cell rolling. P-selectin is stored in the Weibel-Palade bodies of endothelial cells, as well as in a-granules of platelets. From there, it can be rapidly brought to the cell surface after exposure to thrombin, histamine, complement 5a, Ca21 ionophores, or adenosine diphosphate. P-selectin protein redistributes to the plasma membrane during platelet activation and degranulation and mediates the interaction of activated endothelial cells or platelets with leukocytes. P-selectin plays an important role in adhesive processes between leucocytes and endothelial cells, and is a calcium dependent receptor that binds to sialylated forms of Lewis blood group carbohydrate antigens found on neutrophils and monocytes. P-selectin is constitutively expressed in inflammation and contributes to atherogenesis, thrombosis and tissue destruction. Clinically, P-selectin is used to distinguish heparin induced thrombocytopenia with and without thrombosis.
