|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. Appears be required for postnatal control of vascular regression in the eye. Required for posterior patterning of the epiblast during gastrulation.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Endoplasmic reticulum. Note=Chaperoned to the plasma membrane by MESD.|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed, with the highest level of expression in the liver and in aorta|

This gene encodes a transmembrane low-density lipoproteinreceptor that binds and internalizes ligands in the process ofreceptor-mediated endocytosis. This protein also acts as aco-receptor with Frizzled protein family members for transducingsignals by Wnt proteins and was originally cloned on the basis ofits association with type 1 diabetes mellitus in humans. Thisprotein plays a key role in skeletal homeostasis and many bonedensity related diseases are caused by mutations in this gene.Mutations in this gene also cause familial exudativevitreoretinopathy.
