class f scavenger receptors


Summary: A group of structurally related scavenger receptors expressed predominately by ENDOTHELIAL CELLS. They-contain repeats of EPIDERMAL GROWTH FACTOR-like cysteine-rich motifs in their extracellular domains.

    ..Our data suggest that cLDL uses a unique pattern of scavenger receptors. They show that LOX-1 receptor, and partially CD36, SREC-1, and SR-A1 receptors, are essential for the proatherogenic effects of cLDL on human endothelial cells. ..
