Table 3 Membrane-bound receptors associated with lipid raft and/or caveolae and displaying upregulated transcript expression levels in allergic compared to healthy conjunctival specimens.

From: Allergy as an epithelial barrier disease

Beta-adrenergic receptor kinase 1
Specifically phosphorylates the agonist-occupied form of the beta-adrenergic and closely related receptors.
CD59 glycoprotein
Potent inhibitor of the complement membrane attack complex (MAC) action. Involved in signal transduction for T-cell activation complexed to a protein tyrosine kinase.
May play a pivotal role in forebrain function. Binds to, and induces the collapse of, commissural axons/growth cones in vitro.
Ephrin type-A receptor 1
Receptor for members of the ephrin-A family. Binds with a low affinity to ephrin-A1
P2Y purinoceptor 4
Receptor for UTP and UDP coupled to G-proteins that activate a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system.
Somatostatin receptor type 4
The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins, which inhibit adenylyl cyclase.
Tumor necrosis factor ligand superfamily member 8
Cytokine that binds to TNFRSF8/CD30. Induces proliferation of T-cells.
Transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily A member 1
Has a central role in the pain response to endogenous inflammatory mediators and to a diverse array of volatile irritants, such as mustard oil, garlic and capsaicin.
