ChemR23, also known as CMKLR1, is a 47-48 kDa 7-transmembrane member of the rhodopsin, or G-protein coupled receptor family 1. It has restricted expression on select cell types that, in primate, include adipocytes, astrocytes, endothelial cells, microglia/macrophages, chondrocytes, monocytes, osteocytes, NK cells, and plasmacytoid plus myeloid dendritic cells. In mouse, would studies show ChemR23 to be expressed by neutrophils and keratinocytes. The universally-agreed on ligand for ChemR23 is Chemerin, a 137 amino acid (aa) non-chemokine product of fibroblasts, platelets, adipocytes and endothelium. The Chermerin:ChemR23 system is suggested to promote chemotaxis for all ChemR23+ cells, and to induce angiogenesis via endothelial cell migration and MMP-2 and -9 activation. There is one alternative splice form that shows a deletion of aa 1 and 2 (NP_004063). Over the extracellular domains of ChemR23, human and mouse share 69% aa sequence identity.
