Function: Seems to have numerous potential physiological functions. Binds to collagen, thrombospondin, anionic phospholipids and oxidized LDL. May function as a cell adhesion molecule. Directly mediates cytoadherence of Plasmodium falciparum parasitized erythrocytes. Binds long chain fatty acids and may function in the transport and/or as a regulator of fatty acid transport. Receptor for thombospondins, THBS1 AND THBS2, mediating their antiangiogenic effects.
Cellular location: Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.

Genetic variants

Genetic variations in CD36 are involved in susceptibility to malaria and influence the severity and outcome of malaria infection [MIM:611162].
