The molecules of intercellular adhesion are the surface cellular glycoproteins responsible for interaction between cells of different types with one another and with the components of intercellular matrix. They play the primary role in the formation of tissue structure and participate in a number of physiological processes, such as morphogenesis, embryogenesis, organogenesis, wound healing, and inflammation. Together with the other free receptors and their ligands, free intercellular adhesion molecules are formed mainly through shedding, resulting from the proteolytic cleavage of the transmembrane region under physiological conditions or cell destruction. There are almost no literature data on the influence of free intercellular adhesion molecules on the functional activity of T and B lymphocytes and the contents of immunoglobulins, cytokines, and circulating immune complexes. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to identify the interrelationship between the content of free and membrane-bound intercellular adhesion molecules and the level of immunocompetent cell activity in the residents of the Arctic settlement of Revda (Murmansk oblast), who form one of special populations of residents living in the Arctic region of the Russian Federation. It has been found that the contents of sCD54, sCD62L, and sCD324 free intercellular adhesion molecules vary widely, which results from an increase in the concentration of cells with the corresponding membrane forms. An increase in the levels of sCD54 and sCD62 is accompanied by the activation of migration processes with increasing concentrations of circulating neutrophils and total lymphocyte count. The formation of a pool of membrane-bound and free adhesion molecules occurs together with an increase in the content of activated T cells of the HLADRII and CD8 + phenotypes. An increase in the serum levels of sCD54 and L-selectin (sCD62L) adhesion molecules is accompanied by a decrease in the level of immunocompetent cell activity and a twofold increase in the serum level of a natural immunosuppressant IL-10. Low activity of the sCD54 and sCD62L is associated with an increase in the IgE concentration and in immune responses caused by the basophil and eosinophil activation.
