Abstract Historically, the receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) was thought to exclusively play an important role under hyperglycemic conditions. However, more and more evidence suggests that RAGE in fact is an inflammation perpetuating multi-ligand receptor and participates actively in various vascular and inflammatory diseases even in normoglycaemic conditions. Various ligands include advanced glycation end products (AGEs), S100 proteins and amphoterins etc. Besides full-length RAGE, numerous truncated forms of the receptor have also been described including the well-characterized soluble RAGE (sRAGE). sRAGE has an ability to act as a decoy to avoid interaction of RAGE with its pro-inflammatory ligands. Ligand engagement of RAGE activates multiple signaling pathways and also forms a positive feedback loop for its own enhanced expression. This review will discuss the role of multi-ligand receptor i.e. RAGE in context to various vascular diseases, which have a pathophysiologically important inflammatory component in normoglycaemic conditions.
