Background: Scavenger receptor class F member 1 (SCARF1) mediates the selective uptake of modified low density lipoprotein (LDL), such as acetylated LDL and oxidized LDL, into endothelial cells (1). It also mediates heterophilic interactions, suggesting that it functions as an adhesion protein (2). SCARF1 has several characteristic domain structures, an N-terminal extracellular domain with seven epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like cysteine pattern signatures, and an unusually long C-terminal cytoplasmic domain composed of a Ser/Pro-rich region followed by a Gly-rich region. SCARF1 is expressed at high levels in endothelial cells but not in smooth muscle cells (1).
