Sp-Selectin P-selectin editSet type / Edit

«P-selectin is a protein that in humans is encoded by the SELPgene.[5]

P-selectin functions as a cell adhesion molecule (CAM) on the surfaces of activated endothelial cells, which line the inner surface of blood vessels, and activated platelet. In unactivated endothelial cells, it is stored in granules called Weibel-Palade bodies. In unactivated platelet P-selectin is stored in α-granules.

Other names for P-selectin include CD62P, Granule Membrane Protein 140 (GMP-140), and Platelet Activation-Dependent Granule to External Membrane Protein (PADGEM). It was first identified in endothelial cells in 1989.[6]» (wikipedia)
