1) recognising the messenger molecules and attaching to them to trigger series of chemical reactions in the body.
2) by attaching themselves with the foreign particle or part of a body which is to be engulfed by the cell surface membrane.
3) helping in cell adhesion ( attaching one cell to other cells to form tissues)
4) by acting as antigen or cell marker.
