Les Goldstein (Stanford University School of Medicine, Calif.): "This article, and the concurrent study by Ivan Stamenkovic, et al. (Cell, 56:1057, 1989), reported cloning of the lymphocyte homing receptor/adhesion molecule H-CAM(CD44), previously called the Hermes antigen. The cDNA revealed homology to cartilage link and proteoglycan core protein repeated domains, defining H-CAM(CD44) as a novel class of cell adhesion molecule (CAM) unrelated to previously described CAMs. Interest in the study stems in part from the role of H-CAM in lymphocyte homing via high endothelial venules, a critical determinant of immune responses. Immunologists have also been intrigued, however, by recent evidence that this molecule is involved in several other cell-cell interactions important in immune...
