Kupffer Cells

Liver macrophages are also named Kupffer cells. Kupffer cells (KCs) are macrophages that reside in sinusoids in proximity to ECs. The principal function of Kupffer cells is to perform scavenger and phagocytic functions to remove protein complexes, small particles, senescent red blood cells, and cell debris from portal blood flow through pattern recognition receptors (PRRs). Kupffer cells also perform primary immune surveillance against gut-derived toxic materials, including endotoxin lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and pathogens from the intestinal flora.
