The role of macrophage scavenger receptors in host defence

Alternative title:
studies in normal and gentically deficient murine models
Abstract:
Macrophage scavenger receptors (SR) have been studied primarily for their potential involvement in atherogenesis. However, these receptors have broad ligand binding specificity. This thesis examines expression and function of two of these molecules, scavenger receptor tyoe-A (SR-A) and Marco, and investigates a potential role for these molecules in host defence.
