Abstract

The recognition of phosphatidylserine (PS) on apoptotic cells within tissues drives both their engulfment and an accompanying anti-inflammatory and tissue restorative program. Insight into the recognition of this phospholipid signal by phagocytes is provided by papers describing three new, but completely different, PS receptors.
