Chemical Receptors, Lymphocyte Homing

Name Receptors, Lymphocyte Homing
Equivalent Terms Antigen Family, Hermes | Hermes Antigen Family | Homing Receptor, Lymph Node | Homing Receptors, Lymphocyte | Homing Receptors, T Cell | Homing Receptors, T-Cell | Lymph Node Homing Receptor | Lymphocyte Homing Receptors | Receptor, Lymph Node Homing | Receptors, T-Cell Homing | T-Cell Homing Receptors
Definition Cell surface glycoproteins on lymphocytes and other leukocytes that mediate adhesion to specialized blood vessels called high endothelial venules. Several different classes of lymphocyte homing receptors have been identified, and they appear to target different surface molecules (addressins) on high endothelial venules in different tissues. The adhesion plays a crucial role in the trafficking of lymphocytes.
