Immunopharmacology Comments
CLEC4A is an pattern recognition receptor and immunoreceptor that functions in cell adhesion, cell-cell signalling, glycoprotein turnover, and plays roles in inflammation and the immune response. It contains a immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motif (ITIM) in its cytoplasmic domain.
