CD14 antigen

CD14 antigen

A lipopolysaccharide-binding protein found on the cell membranes of macrophages, monocytes, dendritic cells and other cells of the germinal follicles of the spleen. CD14 antigens are thought to be essential for the differentiation of the cells of the monocyte and myelocyte series. The genes are on chromosome 5.
