Scavenger Receptors (Scavenger Receptor) Summary

Description: A large group of structurally diverse cell surface receptors that mediate endocytic uptake of modified LIPOPROTEINS. Scavenger receptors are expressed by MYELOID CELLS and some ENDOTHELIAL CELLS, and were originally characterized based on their ability to bind acetylated LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS. They can also bind a variety of other polyanionic ligand. Certain scavenger receptors can internalize micro-organisms as well as apoptotic cells.

Also Known As: Scavenger Receptor; Macrophage Scavenger Receptor; Receptors, Scavenger; Acetyl-LDL Receptor; Acetyl-LDL Receptors Show All >>
