This article is about cell adhesion molecules. E-selectins (elam-1) are synthesized only when they are required. The immunoglobulin superfamily includes leukocyte function antigen-2 (LFA-2 or CD2 leukocyte function antigen-3 (LFA-3 or CD58 intercellular adhesion molecules (icams vascular adhesion molecule-1 (vcam-1 platelet-endothelial cell adhesion molecule-1 (PE-CAM-1 and mucosal addressin cell adhesion molecule-1 (MAdCAM-1). CD2, LFA-3, cD58, icams intercellular adhesion molecules, vcam-1 vascular adhesion molecule-1 selectins (P, E, L) ; they contain lectin domain, cadherins (Eepithelial, Pplacental, Nneural subclasses the binding sites are different for each of these adhesion molecules.
