CD163 has been identified as a receptor for the uptake of haemoglobin/haptoglobin complexes (HbHp) in order to remove erythrocytes-derived free haemoglobin (Fabriek et al.

Multimeric chains of haptoglobin 2-2 have a higher molecular weight (900 kDa) and have the lowest affinity for HbHp complexes.
