This CD163 molecule is a type I membrane protein also known as M130 antigen, Ber-Mac3, Ki-M8 or SM4. CD163 protein is restricted in its expression to the monocytic/macrophage lineage. It is reported to be present on all circulating monocytes and most tissue macrophages except those found in the mantle zone and germinal centers of lymphoid follicles, interdigitating reticulum cells, and Langerhans cells. Multinucleated cells within inflammatory lesions are reported not to express CD163 protein. The protein is upregulated by glucocorticoids and is downregulated by immunosuppressant cyclosporin A and phorbol esters.

Hemoglobin scavenger receptor
CD163 is a 130 kDa membrane glycoprotein. It is a member of the scavenger receptor cysteine-rich superfamily and is a receptor for the hemoglobin-haptoglobin complex. CD163 is expressed exclusively on the cell surface of human monocytes and macrophages that evolve predominantly in the late phase of inflammation. CD163 is present on all CD14 positive monocytes, most CD64 positive monocytes, and shows higher expression on CD16 positive monocytes. CD163 is upregulated on mononuclear phagocytes by IL-10, IL-6 and dexamethasone. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and phorbol myristate acetate (PMA) both induce shedding of CD163 from the cell surface into plasma or cell supernatant. CD163 is very useful for macrophage phenotyping. Positive staining can be seen in the skin (histiocytes), gut, Kupffer cells, few aveolar macrophages, main population of macrophages in the placenta, varying degrees of macrophages in inflammed tissue including tumorous tissue depending on the inflammatory stage. Red pulp, not white pulp, macrophages in the spleen and cortical macrophages of the thymus are detected.
