CX3CR1 is a 40 kDa seven transmembrane chemokine receptor that is expressed on several T cell subsets, monocytes, macrophages, microglia, and epithelial cells. CX3CR1 binding to membrane bound or soluble CX3CR1/Fractalkine promotes inflammatory responses by inducing monocyte adhesion to endothelial cells and macrophage activation. CX3CR1 polymorphisms are associated with the development of chronic inflammatory disorders. Alternately spliced isoforms have extended N-terminal extracellular regions that increase the potency of CX3CR1 as a fusion co-receptor for HIV-1. Human CX3CR1 shares 82% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat CX3CR1.
