Background Apoptotic cells are rapidly removed by phagocytosis to clear the living cells and tissues of intracellular materials being released from dying cells. Phagocytes recognize apoptotic cells through milk fat globule-EGF-factor 8 (MFG-E8). MFG-E8 is a secreted glycoprotein from thioglycollate-elicited macrophages and binds to phosphatidylserine exposed on the cell surface of apoptotic cells, then binds strongly to cells expressing avb3 integrin via its RGD (arginine-glycine-aspartate) motif. Thus, MFG-E8 is an important protein to mediate the engulfment of apoptotic cells by activated macrophages.
