Plasma membrane receptors specific for the Fc portion of immunoglobulins exist on myeloid and lymphoid cells and in a number of nonlymphoid tissues, including neonatal intestinal epithelial cells, placental trophoblasts, and virus-infected fibroblasts. It is likely that the diversity of such receptors in terms of distribution and specificity reflects a commensurate diversity of function.
