Selectins are a family of calcium-dependent type 1 transmembrane proteins. Endothelial (E)-selectin is a heavily glycosylated transmembrane protein expressed by activated endothelial cells in microvascular linings. E-selectin consists of an N-terminal type 1 lectin domain, an EGF-like domain, 6 sushi (CCP/SCR) domains, a transmembrane sequence, and a short cytoplasmic domain. Recombinant human E-selectin is a 58.6kDa protein containing 535 amino acid residues, corresponding to the extracellular portion of the full length protein. Due to glycosylation, E-selectin migrates at an apparent molecular weight of approximately 65-85kDa by SDS-PAGE analysis under reducing conditions. The gene encoding this protein is localized on human chromosome1q24.2.
E-selectin, along with P-selectin and L-selectin, initiate recruitment of circulating leukocytes from blood to sites of inflammation in the vascular lining through interaction with specific cell surface associated carbohydrate determinants. It is a pro-angiogenic factor. This protein has also been implicated in the pathogenesis of stroke and atherosclerosis.

Lyophilized from 10 mM Sodium Phosphate, pH 7.0.
Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. Do not vortex. This solution can be stored at 2-8°C for up to 1 week. For extended storage, it is recommended to further dilute in a buffer containing a carrier protein (example 0.1% BSA) and store in working aliquots at -20°C to -80°C.
