Abstract

Four members of the carcinoembryonic Ag family, CD66a, CD66b, CD66c, and CD66d, are expressed on human neutrophils. CD66a, CD66b, CD66c, and CD66d Ab binding to the neutrophil surface triggers an activation signal that regulates the adhesive activity of CD11/CD18, resulting in an increase in neutrophil adhesion to HUVEC. To identify active sites on the CD66a Ag, molecular modeling was performed using IgG and CD4 as models, and 28 peptides of 14 aa in length were synthesized that were predicted to be present at loops and turns between β-sheets. The peptides were tested for their ability to alter neutrophil adhesion to HUVEC. Three peptides, each from the N- terminal domain, increased neutrophil adhesion to HUVEC monolayers. This increase in neutrophil adhesion caused by CD66a peptides was associated with up-regulation of CD11/CD18 and down-regulation of CD62L on the neutrophil surface. Scrambled versions of these three peptides had no effect on neutrophil adhesion to the endothelial cells. The data suggest that peptide motifs from at least three regions of the N-terminal domain of CD66a are involved in the interaction of CD66a with other ligands and can initiate signal transduction in neutrophils.
