Table 3 Leukocyte receptors, their corresponding ligands, and their allowed behaviors

From: Dynamics of in silico leukocyte rolling, activation, and adhesion

Leukocyte Receptor Surface Receptor-Ligand Behaviors
PSGL-1 P-Selectin Rolling
VLA-4 Integrin VCAM-1 Rolling, Firm Adhesion
CXCR-2 Chemokine Receptor GRO-α Chemokine Activation
  1. These three receptor-ligand pairs were chosen because together they are sufficient for enabling leukocytes to roll, become activated, and firmly adhere in vitro.
