Structural basis of integrin regulation and signaling. Annual Review of Immunology, 25, 619–647. , Kreitzer, G. , & Muller, W. A. (2008). Leukocyte transmigration requires kinesin-mediated microtubule-dependent membrane trafficking from the lateral border recycling compartment.

One at the cell rear leads to PTEN-mediated PIP2 and RhoA-driven actomyosin contraction. In addition, Cdc42 signaling at the front communicates with the rear of the cells by sending WASp signals to the uropod to activate integrins and RhoA signaling. Lastly, invasive protrusions mediated by Src signaling develop at the ventral and lateral part of the leukocyte to scan for permissive site of transmigration. , 2014). The canonical Rac–RhoA polarity axis is further regulated by another small GTPase, Cdc42.

It is mediated by a series of complex and sequential interactions between the leukocytes and the endothelial apical surface via various adhesion receptors. , 2007; Luo, Carman, & Springer, 2007; Muller, 2013; Nourshargh & Alon, 2014). Endothelial (E)- and platelet (P)-selectin that are expressed on the endothelial apical surface upon inflammatory insults capture leukocytes and mediate their rolling onto the endothelium via leukocyte (L)-selectin. Subsequently, firm adhesion is controlled by adhesion receptors of the immunoglobulin family, namely leukocyte integrins (LFA-1 [lymphocyte function-associated antigen-1 also αLβ2 integrin or CD11a/CD18], Mac-1 [macrophage-1 antigen also αMβ2 integrin or CD11b/CD18], and VLA-4 [very late antigen-4 also α4β1 integrin]), which bind to their endothelial ligands, including ICAM (ICAM-1 and -2) and vascular cell adhesion molecule 1 (VCAM-1), respectively.
