At this stage, the bonds formed are weak and are broken by the shear forces on PMN produced by the flowing blood. Therefore adhesion is transient and reversible (Fig. 4). The purpose of rolling may be in a modulatory role; the effect of rolling is to slow the velocity of PMN as they pass through the venules and to bring the cells into doser contact with the local environment.

In various inflammatory states, dilatation of post-capillary venules may lead to low flow conditions where CD-18-dependent, selectinindependent rolling and sub se quent adhesion may occur. Although L-selectin remains the main selectin studied in rolling models, lipid bilayers containing purified E- or P-selectin are shown to support PMN rolling [12]. Analysis of all these data has produced the multi-step theory of PMN-endothelial recognition currently believed to occur in inflammation [19]. Within minutes of tissue injury or activation, PMN begin interacting loosely with venular walls, rolling along affected segments (Fig.

Antibodies to a myeloid specific cell surface carbohydrate, termed Sialyl Lewis (SLex), blocked E-selectin mediated neutrophil adhesion [11]. The Sialyl Lewis moiety is a sialylated, fucosylated tetrasaccharide. Using an E-selectin chimera it was possible to inhibit binding of the chimera to myeloid cells using antibodies to SLex or glycoproteins containing SLex [11]. P-selectin also binds SLex. However, P-selectin-mediated bin ding, along with L-selectin but not E-selectin, is inhibited using sulfated glycans indicating a role for sulfate in ligand binding although the physiological relevance of this finding is not yet determined.
