CTLs   target cells 2) Signaling 3) Migration at sites of inflammation 4) Recirculation of lymphocytes 5) Localization of cells to tissues or compartments within tissues Also play vital roles in embryogenesis, homeostasis, thrombosis, wound  healing, and tumor metastasis

C ELL  A DHESION  M OLECULE  F AMILIES 1) Selectin Family      (Receptor for Mucin-specific binding) Specialized for mediating  capture/tethering  and  rolling Always  active for binding Responsible for the initial stickiness of leukocytes to vascular endothelium Selectin examples: 1. L-selectin (CD62L) 2. P-selectin (CD62P) 3. E-selectin (CD62E)
