Gene: VLDLR (very low density lipoprotein receptor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: VLDLR
Name: very low density lipoprotein receptor
Description: Exhibits several functions, including apolipoprotein binding activity; very-low-density lipoprotein particle binding activity; and very-low-density lipoprotein particle receptor activity. Involved in glycoprotein transport; receptor-mediated endocytosis; and very-low-density lipoprotein particle clearance. Localizes to membrane and receptor complex. Implicated in Alzheimer's disease; cerebellar ataxia, mental retardation and dysequlibrium syndrome; and dementia. Biomarker of autistic disorder.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
