CD36 is a multifunctional cell surface glycoprotein that acts as a surface receptor for thrombospondin (TSP), and thereby may mediate adhesive interactions between cells and substrata, platelets and other cells, and macrophages and apoptotic neutrophils. The identity of the TSP binding site on CD36 is controversial and may involve more than one structural(More)
Accumulating evidence strongly implicates oxidized LDL (Ox-LDL) in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Several receptors have been identified that bind and internalize Ox-LDL, but their relative importance in vivo is unclear. CD36 is an 88-kD transmembrane glycoprotein expressed on monocytes/macrophages, platelets, and microvascular endothelium that has(More)
Thyroid Cancer is the third most common solid tumor in children, accounting for 35% of the carcinomas in pediatric populations. The reported incidence in the United States is relatively low compared to other tumors (approximately 0.2-0.5 per 100,000/year) with a reported age adjusted incidence of 8.5 per 100,000. As in adults, the tumors are more frequent(More)
