|Reconstitution & Storage||Add 50 ul of distilled water. Final anti-Lrp8 antibody concentration is 1 mg/ml in PBS buffer with 2% sucrose. For longer periods of storage, store at 20°C. Avoid repeat freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Lrp8 antibody - middle region is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Cell surface receptor for Reelin (RELN) and apolipoprotein E (apoE)-containing ligands. LRP8 participates in transmitting the extracellular Reelin signal to intracellular signaling processes, by binding to DAB1 on its cytoplasmic tail. Reelin acts via both the VLDL receptor (VLDLR) and LRP8 to regulate DAB1 tyrosine phosphorylation and microtubule function in neurons. LRP8 has higher affinity for Reelin than VLDLR. LRP8 is thus a key component of the Reelin pathway which governs neuronal layering of the forebrain during embryonic brain development. Binds the endoplasmic reticulum resident receptor-associated protein (RAP). Binds dimers of beta 2-glycoprotein I and may be involved in the suppression of platelet aggregation in the vasculature. Highly expressed in the initial segment of the epididymis, where it affects the functional expression of clusterin and phospholipid hydroperoxide glutathione peroxidase (PHGPx), two proteins required for sperm maturation. May also function as an endocytic receptor.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Secreted. Note=Isoforms that contain the exon coding for a furin-type cleavage site are proteolytically processed, leading to a secreted receptor fragment|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in neurons throughout the brain, with strong expression in pyramidal neurons of the hippocampus, granule cells of the dentate gyrus, cortical neurons and Purkinje cells of the cerebellum. Also expressed in the epithelium of the choroid plexus and of the blood vessels (apical expression), as well as in the epididymis.|
