Chemical Antigens, CD44

Name Antigens, CD44
Equivalent Terms Antigen, CD44 | CD44 Antigen | CD44 Antigens | Chondroitin Sulfate Proteoglycan 8 | Hyaluronan Binding Protein | Hyaluronan-Binding Protein | Hyaluronan Receptor | Hyaluronan Receptors | Hyaluronic Acid Binding Protein | Receptor, Hyaluronan | Receptors, Hyaluronan
Definition Acidic sulfated integral membrane glycoproteins expressed in several alternatively spliced and variable glycosylated forms on a wide variety of cell types including mature T-cells, B-cells, medullary thymocytes, granulocytes, macrophages, erythrocytes, and fibroblasts. CD44 antigens are the principle cell surface receptors for hyaluronate and this interaction mediates binding of lymphocytes to high endothelial venules.
