CCRL2 (C-C chemokine receptor-like 2), also known as chemokine receptor X, human chemokine receptor (HCR), CRAM-A or CRAM-B, is a seven pass transmembrane protein expressed by monocytes, neutrophils, and dendritic cells of immunal tissues (predominanly spleen, fetal liver, bone marrow and lymph node). It shares over 40% homology with other C-C chemokine receptors but does not share the conserved DRY motif which is among the important motifs necessary for signalling and ligand-binding. C-C chemokine receptors are G-protein coupled, seven pass transmembrane domain proteins whose major physiological role is to function in the chemotaxis of T cells and phagocytic cells to areas of inflammation.
