Immune Response, Infection and Inflammation
Macrophage mannose receptor (MMR) or CD206 is
an endocytic and phagocytic receptor that recognizes
appropriately configured carbohydrate ligands in
CD206 is expressed mainly in mature tissue
macrophages and immature dendritic cells, and is
thought to play a role in both the innate and adaptive
immune responses of the host. The expression of
CD206 is affected, among other factors, by
pathogens, cytokines and immunoglobulin receptors.
While the protein sequence information predicts
CD206 to weigh around 166kDa, the cleavage of the
signal peptide gives rise to an immature 154 kDa
protein before undergoing N- and O-linked
glycosylation to result in a 162 kDa mature molecule
in macrophages. Secreted forms resulting from the
proteolytic cleavage of the extracellular domain have
also been observed. The binding to mannose is
