CD163, previously called M130 or p155, is a 130‑160 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to group B of the cysteine-rich scavenger receptor family (1‑3). It is essential for clearance of hemoglobin-haptoglobin (Hb-Hp) complexes in the liver, spleen and circulation (4). The human CD163 contains a 41 amino acid (aa) signal sequence, a 1009 aa extracellular domain (ECD) with 9 scavenger receptor cysteine-rich (SRCR) domains, a 22 aa transmembrane segment, and a 39‑84 aa cytoplasmic region (1). The third SRCR domain is crucial for calcium-dependent binding of hemoglobin/haptoglobin complexes (3). Three splice forms (isoforms 2, 3 and 4) vary within their intracellular regions (1, 5), while one isoform (# 4) also has a 34 aa insert between SRCR domains 5 and 6 within the ECD. While all are expressed, isoform 3 is the most abundant, being generally expressed on the cell surface and most active in endocytosis (5). An approximately 130 kDa soluble form of human CD163 (sCD163) is assumed to contain virtually all of the ECD, which shares 74%, 75%, 84%, 86%, 86% and 87% aa identity with mouse, rat, bovine, equine, porcine and canine CD163 ECD, respectively (6, 7). It is released from the cell surface by proteolysis after oxidative stress or inflammatory stimuli, including bacterial endotoxins and activation of the Toll-like receptors TLR2 or TLR5 (7‑10). Expression of CD163 is constitutive, and induced by glucocorticoids, IL‑10, IL‑6 or endotoxin on circulating monocytes, tissue macrophages, and at low levels on monocyte-derived dendritic cells (1, 2, 11, 12). In addition to clearing Hb‑Hp complexes, CD163 is also a scavenger receptor for free Hb (if Hp is depleted) and TWEAK (TNF-like weak inducer of apoptosis), and can function as an erythroblast adhesion receptor (4, 13‑15).
