Accession:GO:1990666 term browser browse the term
Definition:A protein complex consisting of the serine protease PCSK9 (Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin-9) and a low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR). Interaction typically occurs through the epidermal growth factor-like repeat A (EGF-A) domain of the LDLR, and complex formation promotes degradation of the LDLR through the endosome/lysosome pathway.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: PCSK9/LDL-R complex;   PCSK9:low-density lipoprotein receptor complex
