Histidine-rich glycoprotein specifically binds to necrotic cells via its amino-terminal domain and facilitates necrotic cell phagocytosis

Jones, Allison; Poon, Ivan; Hulett, Mark; Parish, Christopher


Cells that become necrotic or apoptotic through tissue damage or during normal cellular turnover are usually rapidly cleared from the circulation and tissues by phagocytic cells. A number of soluble proteins have been identified that facilitate the phagocytosis of apoptotic cells, but few proteins have been defined that selectively opsonize necrotic cells. Previous studies have shown that histidine-rich glycoprotein (HRG), an abundant (∼100 μg/ml) 75-kDa plasma glycoprotein, binds to cell...[Show more]
