CD88, also known as C5a receptor (C5aR), is a G protein-coupled integral membrane protein. CD88, which is expressed on neutrophils, monocytes, macrophages, hepatocytes and mast cells, as well as on various epithelial and endothelial cells, serves as a receptor for the inflammatory peptide C5a. Research studies suggest a role for CD88 in the inflammatory response. The binding of C5a to CD88 has been shown to elicit increased production of acute phase proteins in liver. In brain, an increased production of CD88 has been shown to be associated with inflammation. Research also indicates a role for C5a/C5aR in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis, as well as a heightened responsiveness of human bronchial epithelial cells (HBECs) to C5a upon exposure of these cells to cigarette smoke and other environmental irritants.
