|Function||Endocytic receptor involved in endocytosis and in phagocytosis of apoptotic cells. Required for early embryonic development. Involved in cellular lipid homeostasis. Involved in the plasma clearance of chylomicron remnants and activated LRPAP1 (alpha 2-macroglobulin), as well as the local metabolism of complexes between plasminogen activators and their endogenous inhibitors. May modulate cellular events, such as APP metabolism, kinase-dependent intracellular signaling, neuronal calcium signaling as well as neurotransmission.|
|Cellular Location||Low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 1 85 kDa subunit: Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Membrane, coated pit Low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 1 intracellular domain: Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=After cleavage, the intracellular domain (LRPICD) is detected both in the cytoplasm and in the nucleus|
|Tissue Location||Most abundant in liver, brain and lung.|

The LDL receptor-related protein (LRP1) is a large endocytic receptor that is widely expressed in several tissues. LRP1 is a member of the LDL receptor family that plays diverse roles in various biological processes including lipoprotein metabolism, degradation of proteases, activation of lysosomal enzymes, and cellular entry of bacterial toxins and viruses. LRP1 can recognize more than 30 distinct ligands, bind a large number of cytoplasmic adaptor proteins via determinants located on its cytoplasmic domain in a phosphorylation-specific manner, and can associate with and modulate the activity of other transmembrane receptors such as integrins and receptor tyrosine kinases (1). This multi-talented receptor has been implicated in regulation of platelet derived growth factor receptor activity, integrin maturation and recycling, and focal adhesion disassembly (2).
