MRC1

Official Full Name
mannose receptor, C type 1
Background
The recognition of complex carbohydrate structures on glycoproteins is an important part of several biological processes, including cell-cell recognition, serum glycoprotein turnover, and neutralization of pathogens. The protein encoded by this gene is a type I membrane receptor that mediates the endocytosis of glycoproteins by macrophages. The protein has been shown to bind high-mannose structures on the surface of potentially pathogenic viruses, bacteria, and fungi so that they can be neutralized by phagocytic engulfment.[provided by RefSeq, Apr 2011]
Synonyms
MRC1; mannose receptor, C type 1; MMR; CD206; MRC1L1; CLEC13D; CLEC13DL; bA541I19.1; macrophage mannose receptor 1; mannose receptor, C type 1-like 1; C-type lectin domain family 13 member D; macrophage mannose receptor 1-like protein 1
