Recombinant Human Low-Density Lipoprotein Receptor/LDLR (C-6His/AVI)
Recombinant Human LDL Receptor is produced by our Mammalian expression system and the target gene encoding Ala22-Arg788 is expressed with a AVI, 6His tag at the C-terminus. Bon Opus Cat. #CC70
BackgroundLow-density lipoprotein receptor 9 (LDL receptor) is a single-pass type I membrane protein which belongs to the LDLR family. It contains 3 EGF-like domains, 7 LDL-receptor class A domains, and 6 LDL-receptor class B repeats. This protein binds LDL, the major cholesterol-carrying lipoprotein of plasma, and transports it into cells by endocytosis. In order to be internalized, the receptor-ligand complexes must first cluster into clathrin-coated pits. In case of HIV-1 infection, it functions as a receptor for extracellular Tat in neurons, mediating its internalization in uninfected cells. Defects in LDLR will result in familial hypercholesterolemia.
FormulationLyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of 50mM HEPES, 150mM NaCl, pH 7.4.
