|Binds to collagen, thrombospondin, anionic phospholipids and oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL). May function as a cell adhesion molecule. Directly mediates cytoadherence of Plasmodium falciparum parasitized erythrocytes. Binds long chain fatty acids and may function in the transport and/or as a regulator of fatty acid transport (By similarity). Receptor for thombospondins, THBS1 AND THBS2, mediating their antiangiogenic effects (By similarity). As a coreceptor for TLR4-TLR6, promotes inflammation in monocytes/macrophages. Upon ligand binding, such as oxLDL or amyloid-beta 42 binding, rapidly induces the formation of a heterodimer of TLR4 and TLR6, which is internalized and triggers inflammatory signals, leading to the NF-kappa-B-dependent production of CXCL1, CXCL2 and CCL9 cytokines, via MYD88 signaling pathway, and CCL5 cytokine, via TICAM1 signaling pathway, as well as IL1B secretion.
