|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Other Accession||P35953, NP_003374.3|
|Calculated MW||96098 Da|
|Antigen Region||484-510 aa|
|Other Names||Very low-density lipoprotein receptor, VLDL receptor, VLDL-R, VLDLR|
|Target/Specificity||This VLDLR antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 484-510 amino acids from the Central region of human VLDLR.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||VLDLR Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Binds VLDL and transports it into cells by endocytosis. In order to be internalized, the receptor-ligand complexes must first cluster into clathrin-coated pits. Binding to Reelin induces tyrosine phosphorylation of Dab1 and modulation of Tau phosphorylation (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Membrane, clathrin-coated pit; Single-pass type I membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Abundant in heart and skeletal muscle; also ovary and kidney; not in liver|

The low density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) gene family consists of cell surface proteins involved in receptor-mediated endocytosis of specific ligands. This gene encodes a lipoprotein receptor that is a member of the LDLR family and plays important roles in VLDL-triglyceride metabolism and the reelin signaling pathway. Mutations in this gene cause VLDLR-associated cerebellar hypoplasia. Alternative splicing generates multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms for this gene. [provided by RefSeq].
