Gene: Ldlr (low density lipoprotein receptor) Mus musculus
Symbol: Ldlr
Name: low density lipoprotein receptor
Description: Exhibits amyloid-beta binding activity; lipoprotein particle receptor activity; and low-density lipoprotein particle binding activity. Involved in several processes, including lipid transport; regulation of inflammatory response; and regulation of lipid metabolic process. Localizes to several cellular components, including the basolateral plasma membrane; cell; and endosome. Used to study familial hypercholesterolemia and fatty liver disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease; arteriosclerosis; familial hypercholesterolemia; hepatitis C; and migraine without aura. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; musculoskeletal system; paravertebral ganglion; and ventral grey horn. Orthologous to human LDLR (low density lipoprotein receptor); PARTICIPATES IN atherosclerosis pathway; bile acid transport pathway; endocytosis pathway; INTERACTS WITH (2R,4R)-1-[(2S)-5-(diaminomethylideneamino)-2-[(3-methyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinolin-8-yl)sulfonylamino]-1-oxopentyl]-4-methyl-2-piperidinecarboxylic acid; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2-butoxyethanol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
