Polarization and interaction of adhesion molecules P-selectin glycoprotein ligand 1 and intercellular adhesion molecule 3 with moesin and ezrin in myeloid cells.

In response to the chemoattractants interleukin 8, C5a, N-formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine, and interleukin 15, adhesion molecules P-selectin glycoprotein ligand 1 (PSGL-1), intercellular adhesion molecule 3 (ICAM-3), CD43, and CD44 are redistributed to a newly formed uropod in human neutrophils. The adhesion molecules PSGL-1 and ICAM-3 were found to colocalize with the cytoskeletal protein moesin in the uropod of stimulated neutrophils. Interaction of PSGL-1 with moesin was shown in HL-60 cell lysates by isolating a complex with glutathione S-transferase fusions of the cytoplasmic domain of PSGL-1. Bands of 78- and 81-kd were identified as moesin and ezrin by Western blot analysis. ICAM-3 and moesin also coeluted from neutrophil lysates with an anti-ICAM-3 immunoaffinity assay. Direct interaction of the cytoplasmic domains of ICAM-3 and PSGL-1 with the amino-terminal domain of recombinant moesin was demonstrated by protein-protein binding assays. These results suggest that the redistribution of PSGL-1 and its association with intracellular molecules, including the ezrin-radixin-moesin actin-binding proteins, regulate functions mediated by PSGL-1 in leukocytes stimulated by chemoattractants.[1]
