FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the scavenger receptor cysteine-rich (SRCR) superfamily, and is exclusively expressed in monocytes and macrophages. It functions as an acute phase-regulated receptor involved in the clearance and endocytosis of hemoglobin/haptoglobin complexes by macrophages, and may thereby protect tissues from free hemoglobin-mediated oxidative damage. This protein may also function as an innate immune sensor for bacteria and inducer of local inflammation. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]
PHENOTYPE: After hindlimb ischemia, mice homozygous for a knock-out allele exhibit increased muscle satellite cell proliferation, and enhanced skeletal muscle regeneration not limited to the site of injury. Knock-out mice also exhibit increased eosinophilic airway inflammation in house dust mite-challenged. [provided by MGI curators]
