Class A scavenger receptors (SR-As) are a family of five surface receptors whose functions in mammals are associated with innate immunity; however, their role in fish immunity requires further elucidation. The present study identifies, performs sequence analysis, and constitutive transcript expression analysis for three SR-A family members, SCARA3, SCARA4 and SCARA5, from rainbow trout. This work will provide a basis for future studies on SR-A function and their role in innate immunity in this economically important fish.
