Yes, it can be a ligand for L-selectin.
Don't know. Wouldn't think anyone would have tried this, as making the
neoglycogonjugates is much more difficult and expensive then MAb
Well, yes to a certain extent. Depends somewhat on the nature of your
experiment, and the way the your carbohydrate is presented.

This follows from above. sLex is not, however, the best ligand, nor
blocker of L-selectin. The natural ligand(s) is(are) probably (well,
ok, almost definately) more complex as well.
