The recruitment of leukocytes from the vascular lumen to sites of inflammation is an integral part of both the innate and adaptive immune response. This thesis focuses on the potential role of the recently identified junctional adhesion molecule (JAM)-C in this process. Although a number of in vitro and in vivo studies have implicated JAM-C in leukocyte trafficking, the precise role of the molecule in recruitment remains unclear.
