P-selectin (CD62P, LECAM-3) was originally purified from platelets and later found to be expressed also in endothelial cells. In both cell types, P-selectin is constitutively expressed and stored in secretory granules – α-granules in platelets and Weibel-Palade bodies in endothelial cells.
A soluble form of P-selectin, which might represent a proteolytic fragment or a soluble splice variant lacking the transmembrane domain, is found in serum and plasma. High expression of P-selectin or sP-selectin has been implicated in several inflammatory disorders, including adult respiratory distress syndrome, acute lung injury, ischemia-reperfusion injury, Gram-negative septic shock, thrombotic diseases, malaria, systemic sclerosis, connective tissue disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Furthermore, lung injury scores correlate significantly with sP-selectin in plasma of patients with acute lung injury.
Store the CD62P ELISA Assay kit reagents between 2 and 8°C. Immediately after use remaining reagents should be returned to cold storage (2-8°C). Expiry of the kit and reagents is stated on box front labels. The expiry of the kit components can only be guaranteed if the components are stored properly, and if, in case of repeated use of one component, the reagent is not contaminated by the first handling.
