  • Function
    Acts as a scavenger receptor on macrophages, which specifically binds to OxLDL (oxidized low density lipoprotein), suggesting that it may be involved in pathophysiology such as atherogenesis (By similarity). Induces a strong chemotactic response. Induces calcium mobilization. Binds to CXCR6/Bonzo.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in T-cell areas. Expressed in spleen, lymph nodes, lung, kidney, small intestine and thymus. Weak expression in heart and liver and no expression in brain and bone marrow.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the intercrine alpha (chemokine CxC) family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Glycosylated.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane. Secreted. Also exists as a soluble form.
  • Information by UniProt
