Efferocytosis changes the phenotype of macrophages for tissue repair and regeneration. a Recognition of PS induces the engulfment of apoptotic cells as well as the reprograming of macrophages, which results in the conversion of macrophages into these cells for the restoration of inflammation and tissue repair. b PS recognition by RAGE. RAGE is a PS receptor, the function of which is similar to that of other PS receptors including BAI1 and Tim-4 (left). sRAGE may block PS binding to Ps receptors by masking PS as a decoy receptor
