    Roles for LBP and CD14 in the LPS dependent activation of a wide variety of cells have been established. In the work described here, we describe roles for these proteins in the binding and uptake of LPS by cells which express membrane CD14 and those which do not. Surprisingly, cell activation and LPS uptake appear to be independent phenomena with different protein requirements.
