|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||33885 Da|
|Antigen Region||277-306 aa|
|Other Names||Low density lipoprotein receptor adapter protein 1, Autosomal recessive hypercholesterolemia protein, LDLRAP1, ARH|
|Target/Specificity||This ARH (LDLRAP1) antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 277-306 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human ARH (LDLRAP1).|
|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||ARH (LDLRAP1) Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Adapter protein (clathrin-associated sorting protein (CLASP)) required for efficient endocytosis of the LDL receptor (LDLR) in polarized cells such as hepatocytes and lymphocytes, but not in non-polarized cells (fibroblasts). May be required for LDL binding and internalization but not for receptor clustering in coated pits. May facilitate the endocytocis of LDLR and LDLR-LDL complexes from coated pits by stabilizing the interaction between the receptor and the structural components of the pits. May also be involved in the internalization of other LDLR family members. Binds to phosphoinositides, which regulate clathrin bud assembly at the cell surface.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed at high levels in the kidney, liver, and placenta, with lower levels detectable in brain, heart, muscle, colon, spleen, intestine, lung, and leukocytes|

LDLRAP1 is a cytosolic protein which contains a phosphotyrosine binding (PTD) domain. The PTD domain has been found to interact with the cytoplasmic tail of the LDL receptor. This adapter protein is required for efficient endocytosis of the LDL receptor (LDLR) in polarized cells such as hepatocytes and lymphocytes, but not in non-polarized cells (fibroblasts). LDLRAP1 may be required for LDL binding and internalization but not for receptor clustering in coated pits. This protein may facilitate the endocytocis of LDLR and LDLR-LDL complexes from coated pits by stabilizing the interaction between the receptor and the structural components of the pits, and may also be involved in the internalization of other LDLR family members. Mutations in the LDLRAP1 gene lead to LDL receptor malfunction and cause the disorder autosomal recessive hypercholesterolaemia.
