Abstract

E-selectin elicits cell adhesion by binding to the cell surface carbohydrate, sialyl Lewis X ( sLe x). We evaluated the effects of mutations in the E-selectin lectin domain on the binding of a panel of anti-E-selectin mAbs and on the recognition of immobilized sLe x glycolipid. Functional residues were then superimposed onto a three-dimensional model of the E-selectin lectin domain. This analysis demonstrated that the epitopes recognized by blocking mAbs map to a patch near the antiparallel beta sheet derived from the NH2 and COOH termini of the lectin domain and two adjacent loops. Mutations that affect sLe x binding map to this same region. These results thus define a small region of the E-selectin lectin domain that is critical for carbohydrate recognition.
