SR

Scavenger receptor Cys-rich
SR
SMART accession number:SM00202
Description: The sea ucrhin egg peptide speract contains 4 repeats of SR domains that contain 6 conserved cysteines. May bind bacterial antigens in the protein MARCO.
Interpro abstract (IPR017448):

The egg peptide speract receptor is a transmembrane glycoprotein [(PUBMED:8140623)]. Other members of this family include the macrophage scavenger receptor type I (a membrane glycoprotein implicated in the pathologic deposition of cholesterol in arterial walls during artherogenesis), an enteropeptidase and T-cell surface glycoprotein CD5 (may act as a receptor in regulating T-cell proliferation).

GO component:membrane (GO:0016020)
