Mediates the endocytosis of glycoproteins by macrophages. Binds both sulfated and non-sulfated polysaccharide chains. Acts as phagocytic receptor for bacteria, fungi and other pathogens. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
