|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat, Hamster, Bovine|
|Calculated MW||95376 Da|
|Application & Usage||Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes mature LDLR (160 kDa), LDLR precursor (120 kDa) and LDLR monomer (~50 kDa).|
|Other Names||FH , FHC , LDL receptor , LDLR , LDLR precursor|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-LDLR polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||LDLR Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Binds LDL, the major cholesterol-carrying lipoprotein of plasma, and transports it into cells by endocytosis. In order to be internalized, the receptor-ligand complexes must first cluster into clathrin-coated pits. In case of HIV-1 infection, functions as a receptor for extracellular Tat in neurons, mediating its internalization in uninfected cells.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Endomembrane system; Single-pass type I membrane protein Membrane, clathrin-coated pit; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Golgi apparatus. Early endosome. Late endosome. Cell surface. Lysosome. Note=Found distributed from the plasma membrane to intracellular compartments. Localizes to the Golgi apparatus, early and late endosomes/lysosomes and cell surface in the presence of PCSK9|

Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
Low density lipoprotein receptors (LDLR) are cell surface glycoproteins that regulate LDL cholesterol by scavenging LDL from the blood. LDLR is characterized by a cluster of cysteine-rich class A repeats, EGF-like repeats, the O-linked s µgars domain and six YWTD or class B repeats. Mutations in the LDLR gene cause autosomal dominant disease such as familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) and atherosclerosis.
