Belongs to the LAMP family.
Highly expressed by blood monocytes and tissue macrophages. Also expressed in lymphocytes, fibroblasts and endothelial cells. Expressed in many tumor cell lines which could allow them to attach to selectins on vascular endothelium, facilitating their dissemination to secondary sites.
N- and O-glycosylated.

CD68, also called Scavenger Receptor D1 (SR-D1) or macrosialin in mouse, is a 110 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to the LAMP family of molecules. It contains a 300 amino acid (aa) extracellular region that is rich in threonine and serine, a likely attachment site for multiple carbohydrates. Human CD68 shares 74% aa sequence identity to mouse CD68 in the extracellular region. CD68 is found on monocytes and macrophages and serves as a scavenger receptor for oxidized LDL.
