Unformatted text preview: ent the pathogen is in, it has these receptors that are capable of recognizing their presence outside the cell, in the cytosol, phagolysosome, etc. Endocytic pattern recognition receptors C type lectin family- bind sugars, and are calcium dependent These are all capable of recognizing sugar arrays on the surface of microorganisms. Scavenger Receptors N- formyl for unique end terminals of prokaryotic proteins Complement receptors. These are all involved in ligating the pathogen to the phagocyte, and assist the phagocyte in uptakin git. There are a number of pattern recognition receptors that are soluble, found in blood and tissue fluid. E.g. mannose binding lectin that...
