Gene: CD68 (CD68 molecule) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CD68
Name: CD68 molecule
Description: Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cellular response to lipopolysaccharide; cellular response to oxidised low-density lipoprotein particle stimulus; and negative regulation of dendritic cell antigen processing and presentation. Predicted to localize to late endosome membrane; lysosomal membrane; and plasma membrane. Biomarker of severe acute respiratory syndrome.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: CD68 antigen; DKFZp686M18236; GP110; LAMP4; macrophage antigen CD68; macrosialin; SCARD1; scavenger receptor class D, member 1
