CD99L2 Plays a role in a late step of leukocyte extravasation helping cells to overcome the endothelial basement membrane. Acts at the same site as, but independently of, PECAM1. Homophilic adhesion molecule, but these interactions may not be required for cell aggregation. Belongs to the CD99 family. Expressed in many tissues, with low expression in thymus. 6 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
