Fc receptors

Curr Opin Immunol. 1997 Feb;9(1):121-5. doi: 10.1016/s0952-7915(97)80168-9.


In the past year, significant progress in the area of Fc receptor biology has been made in three areas: identification of the protective FcR for serum IgG half-life (Brambell receptor), characterization of the mechanism(s) of inhibitory receptor Fc gamma RIIB signaling, and dissection of the in vivo roles of FcRs in inflammation.
