DEC-205 (Dendritic and thymic Epithelial Cell-205; also Ly-75 and CD205) is a 200-205 kDa member of the mannose receptor family of molecules. In mouse, it is widely expressed, being found on B cells, Langerhans cells, bone marrow-derived dendritic cells, neutrophils, plus respiratory, intestinal, and thymic cortical epithelium. DEC-205 serves as a recognition/endocytic receptor for dying cells, and likely participates in the induction of self-tolerance. Mature mouse DEC-205 is a 1696 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane glycoprotein (aa 28-1723). It contains a 1640 aa extracellular domain (ECD) (aa 28-1667) and a 31 aa cytoplasmic tail. The ECD is highly modular, containing a ricin B-type lectin domain (aa 33-182), a FN type II domain (aa 164-211) and nine sequential C-type lectin domains (aa 225-1662). There are at least two potential isoform variants. One shows a two aa substitution for aa 866-1723, and another shows a 64 aa substitution for aa 734-1723. Over aa 216-503, mouse DEC-205 shares 87% and 79% aa identity with rat and human DEC-205, respectively.
