LRP5 Antibody (C-term)

Purified Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Pab)

  • WB - LRP5 Antibody (C-term) AP6157A
    LRP5 Antibody (C-term)(Cat. #AP6157a) is used in Western blot to detect recombinant human LRP5 (Lane 1) and mouse LRP5 (Lane 2) proteins in transfected 293 cell lysates. Data is kindly provided by Drs. V. Harris and S. Aaronson from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine (New York, NY).
  • IHC-P - LRP5 Antibody (C-term) AP6157A
    Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human cancer tissue reacted with the primary antibody, which was peroxidase-conjugated to the secondary antibody, followed by AEC staining. This data demonstrates the use of this antibody for immunohistochemistry; clinical relevance has not been evaluated. BC = breast carcinoma; HC = hepatocarcinoma.

Protein Information
Name LRP5 {ECO:0000303|PubMed:24706814, ECO:0000312|HGNC:HGNC:6697}
Function Acts as a coreceptor with members of the frizzled family of seven-transmembrane spanning receptors to transduce signal by Wnt proteins (PubMed:11336703, PubMed:11448771, PubMed:15778503, PubMed:11719191, PubMed:15908424, PubMed:16252235). Activates the canonical Wnt signaling pathway that controls cell fate determination and self-renewal during embryonic development and adult tissue regeneration (PubMed:11336703, PubMed:11719191). In particular, may play an important role in the development of the posterior patterning of the epiblast during gastrulation (By similarity). During bone development, regulates osteoblast proliferation and differentiation thus determining bone mass (PubMed:11719191). Mechanistically, the formation of the signaling complex between Wnt ligand, frizzled receptor and LRP5 coreceptor promotes the recruitment of AXIN1 to LRP5, stabilizing beta- catenin/CTNNB1 and activating TCF/LEF-mediated transcriptional programs (PubMed:11336703, PubMed:25920554, PubMed:24706814, PubMed:14731402). Acts as a coreceptor for non-Wnt proteins, such as norrin/NDP. Binding of norrin/NDP to frizzled 4/FZD4-LRP5 receptor complex triggers beta-catenin/CTNNB1-dependent signaling known to be required for retinal vascular development (PubMed:27228167, PubMed:16252235). Plays a role in controlling postnatal vascular regression in retina via macrophage-induced endothelial cell apoptosis (By similarity).
Cellular Location Membrane {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q91VN0}; Single-pass type I membrane protein {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q91VN0}. Endoplasmic reticulum. Note=Chaperoned to the plasma membrane by MESD. {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q91VN0}
Tissue Location Widely expressed, with the highest level of expression in the liver and in aorta

Low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor-related protein (LRP), a member of the LDL receptor family, binds multiple classes of ligands and has been implicated in a broad range of normal and disease processes involving lipid metabolism, protease clearance, and cell migration. Structurally, members of the LDLR family share homology within their extracellular domains, which are highlighted by the presence of clusters of ligand-binding repeats. LRP is a large endocytic receptor that participates in several biological pathways and plays prominent roles in lipoprotein metabolism and in the catabolism of proteinases involved in coagulation and fibrinolysis. LRP also mediates the cellular entry of certain viruses and toxins and facilitates the activation of various lysosomal enzymes. All LRPs are expressed in the central nervous system and, for most receptors, animal models have shown that they are indispensable for successful neurodevelopment. The mechanisms by which they regulate the formation of the nervous system are varied and include the transduction of extracellular signals and the modulation of intracellular signal propagation, as well as cargo transport, the function most commonly attributed to this gene family.
