From the authors: “Our work now identifies nucleolin, a protein expressed intracellularly as well as on the cell surface, as an L-selectin ligand active under physiologically relevant conditions of lymphodynamic shear stress, not just in unstressed, immuno-affinity assays.”

This study is highlighted as one of December's "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
