Duffy Antigen Receptor for Chemokines (DARC), also known as Fy glycoprotein and CD234, is a 7TM non-signaling chemokine receptor that is expressed on venular endothelial cells and erythrocytes. DARC binds and mediates the internalization of several inflammatory CC and CXC chemokines. It transports chemokines to the lumenal face of venular endothelium to promote the extravasation of leukocytes to sites of inflammation. DARC polymorphisms are important in blood transfusion compatibility and determine the susceptibility of erythrocytes to Plasmodium vivax infection. Human DARC shares 60% amino acid sequence identity with mouse DARC.
