An immune receptor (or immunologic receptor) is a receptor, usually on a cell membrane, which binds to a substance (for example, a cytokine) and causes a response in the immune system.
Additional recommended knowledge
One class of non-self molecules are called antigens (short for antibody generators) and are defined as substances that bind to specific immune receptors and elicit an immune response.
|Transmembrane receptors: immune receptors|
|Cytokine receptor||Type I: interleukin (IL-2, IL-3) - CSF (Erythropoietin, GM-CSF, G-CSF) - Glycoprotein 130/Oncostatin M - Leukemia inhibitory factor - common subunits (Common gamma chain, CSF2RB)|
Type II: interleukin (IL22RA2) - interferon (IFNAR, IFNGR)
Other: Chemokine - TGF-beta - Tumor necrosis factor
|Pattern recognition/Toll-like||TLR 1 - TLR 2 - TLR 3 - TLR 4 - TLR 5 - TLR 6 - TLR 7 - TLR 8 - TLR 9 - TLR 10|
|Fc receptor||ε (FcεRI, FcεRII) - γ (FcγRI, FcγRII, FcγRIII) - α/μ (FcαRI, Fcα/μR) - Neonatal|
|Lymphocyte homing receptor||CD44 - L-selectin - VLA-4 - LFA-1|
|other||Antigen receptor (B-cell, T cell) - Complement - Formyl peptide - Immunophilins - Integrin - Killer-cell immunoglobulin-like - Scavenger|
