|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||180429 Da|
|Antigen Region||1531-1560 aa|
|Other Names||Low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 6, LRP-6, LRP6|
|Target/Specificity||This LRP6 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 1531-1560 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human LRP6.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|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||LRP6 Antibody (C-term T1546) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Component of the Wnt-Fzd-LRP5-LRP6 complex that triggers beta-catenin signaling through inducing aggregation of receptor- ligand complexes into ribosome-sized signalsomes. Cell-surface coreceptor of Wnt/beta-catenin signaling, which plays a pivotal role in bone formation. The Wnt-induced Fzd/LRP6 coreceptor complex recruits DVL1 polymers to the plasma membrane which, in turn, recruits the AXIN1/GSK3B-complex to the cell surface promoting the formation of signalsomes and inhibiting AXIN1/GSK3- mediated phosphorylation and destruction of beta-catenin. Required for posterior patterning of the epiblast during gastrulation (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Endoplasmic reticulum. Note=On Wnt signaling, undergoes a cycle of caveolin- or clathrin-mediated endocytosis and plasma membrane location. Released from the endoplasmic reticulum on palmitoylation. Mono-ubiquitination retains it in the endoplasmic reticulum in the absence of palmitoylation. On Wnt signaling, phosphorylated, aggregates and colocalizes with AXIN1 and GSK3B at the plasma membrane in LRP6-signalsomes. Chaperoned to the plasma membrane by MESD (By similarity).|
|Tissue Location||Widely coexpressed with LRP5 during embryogenesis and in adult tissues|
Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
LRP6 is essential for the Wnt/beta catenin signaling pathway, probably by acting as a coreceptor together with Frizzled for Wnt. It is a specific, high-affinity receptor for DKK1 and DKK2, but not DKK3. The interaction with DKK1 blocks LRP6-mediated Wnt/beta catenin signaling via LRP6 removal via Kremen proteins-mediated endocytosis.
