Macrophages derived from human blood monocytes perform many tasks related to tissue injury and repair. The main effect of macrophages on the extracellular matrix is considered to be destructive in nature, because macrophages secrete metalloproteinases and ingest foreign material as part of the remodeling process that occurs in wound healing and other(More)
Macrophages are an important part of the cellular immune system and play a key role during immune responses. Thus, macrophages are interesting targets in basic and clinical research. Primary monocytes or monocyte-derived macrophages do not proliferate on a suitable scale so that their use for functional studies in vitro is limited. Immortal proliferating(More)
SMAP-5 is a member of the five-pass transmembrane protein family localizing in the Golgi apparatus and the endoplasmic reticulum. These proteins have been implicated in intracellular trafficking, in secretion and in vesicular transport. Phylogenetic analyses revealed that SMAP-5 is a member of a small Rab GTPase interacting factor protein family. The human(More)
