Phosphatidylserine receptors: what is the new RAGE?

EMBO Rep. 2011 Apr;12(4):287-8. doi: 10.1038/embor.2011.41. Epub 2011 Mar 11.

Abstract

The identification of RAGE as a phophatidylserine receptor—in this issue of EMBO reports by He et al—adds to the range of molecules that can sense this ‘eat-me' signal, and suggests new potential therapeutic opportunities.
