Quick Reference

A structurally diverse family of macrophage receptors involved in the uptake of a variety of things including modified LDL. Six classes are recognized, with different binding preferences: Class A bind a wide range of ligands, including bacteria and possibly apoptotic cells. They have also been implicated in the development of atherosclerotic lesions. Collectins are considered to be scavenger receptors.
