Abstract

The macrophage expresses a variety of cell surface lectins with activities that support specific functional roles and correspond to various differentiation states characteristic of this cell type. Recently, research has been carried out to investigate the mannose receptor, the advanced glycosylation end products receptor, the mannose-6-phosphate-receptor, the beta-glucan receptor, sialoadhesin and several galactose-specific binding proteins.
