P-selectin glycoprotein ligand 1 (PSGL-1) is a mucin-like glycoprotein expressed on the surface of myeloid cells and serves as the high affinity counterreceptor for P-selectin. The PSGL-1-P-selectin interaction is calcium dependent and requires presentation of sialyl-Lewisx (sLex)-type structures on the O-linked glycans of PSGL-1. It is believed that a sulfotyrosine-containing segment of PSGL-1, in conjunction with sLex presented on O-linked glycans, constitutes the high affinity P-selectin-binding site (1). Studies have suggested that PSGL-1 needs to be tyrosine-sulfated, in addition to glycosylated with sLe(X), to successfully interact with P-selectin. the addition of tyrosine sulfation to glycosylated peptides (SGP3) creates a super ligand for P-selectin that supports slower rolling adhesion at all shear rates and supports rolling adhesion at much higher shear rates. Tyrosine sulfation has no similar effect on PSGL-1 rolling on E-selectin. Such functional distinctions in rolling dynamics are uniquely realized with a cell-free system, which permits precise, unambiguous identification of the functional activity of adhesive ligands (2).
