Abstract Collagen, the most abundant protein in the human body, is a major constituent of extracellular matrix. Among macrophage membrane proteins, type I and II scavenger receptors and MARCO contain a collagenous domain. Analysis of type I and II receptor knockout mice and histochemical studies indicate that these proteins play roles in scavenger, adhesion and host defense functions of macrophages.
