Monocyte Receptor

Monocytes are a population of circulating white blood cells with the potential to differentiate into macrophages and dendritic cells in tissue. Monocytes develop in the bone marrow and can be subdivided based on size, trafficking and innate immune receptor expression.
human CD300c is an activating receptor expressed on monocytes and that it has a potential role in inflammatory responses. Monocytes play a key role in eliminating invading bacteria, virus, fungi, and protozoans, and have negative effects on the pathogenesis of inflammatory and degenerative diseases.
