Members of the scavenger receptor cysteine rich superfamily are typically expressed on cells associated with the immune system (Resnick et al., 1994). However, proteins containing scavenger receptor cysteine rich (SRCR) domains were also shown to be synthesized by other cells such as epithelial cells in the gastrointestinal channel (Cheng et al., 1996; Holmskov et al., 1999) and hepatocytes (Goldberger et al., 1987). SRCR domains are thought to mediate protein-protein interactions and ligand…

Cloning of a Novel Scavenger Receptor Cysteine-Rich Type I Transmembrane Molecule (M160) Expressed by Human Macrophages1
It is concluded that M160 is a new member of the scavenger receptor cysteine-rich superfamily expressed by the monocyte/macrophage cell lineage.
Cloning of S4D-SRCRB, a new soluble member of the group B scavenger receptor cysteine-rich family (SRCR-SF) mapping to human Chromosome 7q11.23
The cloning of the gene encoding human S4D-SRCRB constitutes a novel soluble member of the SRCR-SF, which could be involved in basic homeostatic functions such as innate host defense.
The Conserved Scavenger Receptor Cysteine-Rich Superfamily in Therapy and Diagnosis
The present review will illustrate some available evidence on the potential of well known and new members of the SRCR-SF in this regard, and some of these approaches are already in use, paving the way for a more comprehensive use of SRCr-SF members in the clinic.
CD163-L1 Is an Endocytic Macrophage Protein Strongly Regulated by Mediators in the Inflammatory Response
CD163-L1 exhibits similarity to CD163 in terms of structure and regulated expression in cultured monocytes but shows clear differences compared with the known CD163 ligand preferences and expression pattern in the pool of tissue macrophages.
Expression of CD163 (Hemoglobin Scavenger Receptor) in Normal Tissues, Lymphomas, Carcinomas, and Sarcomas Is Largely Restricted to the Monocyte/Macrophage Lineage
Its limited range of expression and tissue specificity indicate that CD163 may have significant diagnostic utility in separating specific tumors with monocytic and histiocytic derivation from other entities in their differential diagnosis.
Identification of the CD163 Protein Domains Involved in Infection of the Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus
Infection experiments revealed that scavenger receptor cysteine-rich domain 5 (SRCR 5) is essential for PRRSV infection, while the four N-terminal SRCR domains and the cytoplasmic tail are not required.
CD163 and inflammation: biological, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects.
The scavenging of the oxidative and proinflammatory Hb leading to stimulation of the heme-oxygenase-1 and production of anti- inflammatory heme metabolites indicates that CD163 indirectly contributes to the anti-inflammatory response.
Expression of macrophage antigens by tumor cells.
expression of macrophage antigens in breast- and colorectal-cancers may have a prognostic relevance in clinical praxis and resemblance with macrophages may indicate a more invasive phenotype due to genetic exchange between the primary tumor cells and associated Macrophages.
Breast cancer expression of CD163, a macrophage scavenger receptor, is related to early distant recurrence and reduced patient survival
Multivariate analysis showed that expression of the macrophage antigen CD163 in breast cancer cells has a prognostic impact on the occurrence of distant metastases and reduced patient survival time.


Genomic organization and chromosomal localization of the human CD163 (M130) gene: a member of the scavenger receptor cysteine-rich superfamily.
The nucleotide analysis revealed several putative binding sites for transcription factors, which have been shown to play an important role in myeloid specific gene expression, and a L1 element located 1.4 kb upstream of the major transcription initiation site.
A new macrophage differentiation antigen which is a member of the scavenger receptor superfamily
The antibodies Ki‐M8, Ber‐Mac3, GHI/61 and SM4 define a human macrophage‐associated antigen with a relative molecular mass of 130000 which the authors designate M130, and the membrane protein encoded contains a leader peptide of 40 residues, a putative extracellular domain of 1003 residues, followed by a hydrophobic segment of 24 residues and a cytoplasmic domain of 49 residues.
Cloning of gp-340, a putative opsonin receptor for lung surfactant protein D.
Reverse transcription-PCR analysis showed that the main sites of synthesis of gp-340 are lung, trachea, salivary gland, small intestine, and stomach, and the distribution ofgp-340 in macrophages is compatible with a role as an opsonin receptor for SP-D.
A role for CD5 in TCR-mediated signal transduction and thymocyte selection.
Observations indicate that CD5 can influence the fate of developing thymocytes by acting as a negative regulator of TCR-mediated signal transduction.
CRP‐ductin: A gene expressed in intestinal crypts and in pancreatic and hepatic ducts
The structure of the CRP protein suggests a role in ligand interaction; possible functions are discussed.
An optimized, fully automated system for fast and accurate identification of chromosomal rearrangements by multiplex-FISH (M-FISH)
To determine the characteristic spectral signatures for all different combinations of fluorochromes, a novel multichannel image analysis method is developed, which is solely guided by the image information itself and does not require any user interaction.
