Egf-like module containing, mucin-like, hormone receptor-like 1
EMR1 Gene
RNA expression pattern

EGF-like module-containing mucin-like hormone receptor-like 1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the EMR1 gene.[1][2][3] The mouse homologue is known as F4/80.[4]


This gene encodes a protein that is a member of the adhesion-GPCR family. [5] Family members are characterized by an extended extracellular region with a variable number of protein domains coupled to a TM7 region via membrane proximal GAIN domain. In the case of EMR1 these domains are Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF-like) domains.

Emr1 is a transmembrane protein present on the cell-surface of human macrophages, which are derived from the myeloid lineage. It has an approximate mass of 125 kDa, and is associated with mature macrophages.
