Description CD36 is a "scavenger" receptor responsible for the uptake of oxidized low-density lipoprotein (Ox-LDL) by macrophages. Increased expression of CD36 is correlated with increased Ox-LDL uptake over a range of glucose concentrations. It known that CD36 is a receptor of glycosilated ox-LDL and may be involved in the development of atherosclerosis in diabetics. It has been determined experimentally that the expression of CD36 is regulated at the post-transcriptional level. The 5'UTR region of t......
