Mouse MARCO is a type II transmembrane glycoprotein belonging to the class A scavenger receptor family. It is constitutively expressed in subsets of macrophages found in the marginal zone of the spleen, the peritoneum, and the medullary cord of lymph nodes. The extracellular domains of MARCO form a 220 kDa disulfide-linked homotrimer on the cell surface. MARCO binds both gram positive and gram negative bacteria, as well as oxidized low-density lipoprotein. The amino acid sequence of mouse MARCO extracellular domain is 69% identical to that of human MARCO.
