Histidine-rich glycoprotein is a novel plasma pattern recognition molecule that recruits IgG to facilitate necrotic cell clearance via FcγRI on phagocytes

Poon, Ivan; Hulett, Mark; Parish, Christopher

Description

Under normal physiologic conditions, necrotic cells resulting from tissue injury are rapidly removed from the circulation and tissues by phagocytes, thus preventing the exposure of intracellular antigenic and immunostimulatory molecules that can aid the development of autoimmune disease. Histidine-rich glycoprotein (HRG), a relatively abundant plasma glycoprotein, has a multidomain structure that can interact with many ligands including components of the fibrinolytic and immune systems....[Show more]
