Gene: LDLR (low density lipoprotein receptor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: LDLR
Name: low density lipoprotein receptor
Description: Exhibits several functions, including identical protein binding activity; lipoprotein particle receptor activity; and low-density lipoprotein particle binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cholesterol homeostasis; cholesterol transport; and long-term memory. Localizes to several cellular components, including PCSK9-LDLR complex; clathrin-coated pit; and endosome. Implicated in Alzheimer's disease; arteriosclerosis; familial hypercholesterolemia; hepatitis C; and migraine without aura. Biomarker of systemic lupus erythematosus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: FH; FHC; FHCL1; LDL receptor; LDLCQ2; low-density lipoprotein receptor; low-density lipoprotein receptor class A domain-containing protein 3
