Scavenger Receptor A5 (SCARA5), also known as Tesr, is a 70-75 kDa kDa member of the scavenger receptor "supergroup" of molecules. It is one of at least six class A members that possess a collagen-like domain and form intramembrane homotrimers (1,3). Class A scavenger receptors are type II transmembrane proteins. Mature human SCARA5 consists of a 60 amino acid (aa) cytoplasmic domain, a 21 aa transmembrane segment, and a 414 aa extracellular domain (ECD) with a spacer, a collagen-like, and a Scavenger Receptor Cysteine-Rich (SRCR) domain (3-6). Within the ECD, human SCARA5 shares 87% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat SCARA5. Among other class A members, it shares 23%‑34% aa sequence identity with CL-P1, MARCO, SCARA3, and SR-A1 in the ECD. Alternate splicing generates isoforms that lack the SRCR domain, the transmembrane segment, or the 225 aa spacer region between the membrane and the collagen-like domain (6). SCARA5 is a cell surface disulfide-linked homotrimer of 200-210 kDa (5,7). It is highly expressed by a number of cell types, including testicular Sertoli cells, transitional epithelium, respiratory pseudostratified columnar epithelium, intestinal M cells, astrocytes, retinal ganglion cells, endothelial cells and likely intestinal Paneth cells (5, 8). SCARA5 binds heat-killed bacterial particles but not yeast particles or modified LDL (5). It is also recognized to bind and transport L (light)-ferritin across anatomical boundaries (8). Finally, SCARA5 has also been found in both nucleus and cytoplasm (8).
