Apolipoprotein E receptor 2 (ApoER2, also known as LRP8) is expressed predominantly in the brain and placenta. This gene is located on human chromosome 1p32.
The low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 8 (LRP8) or ApoER2 is a member of the LDL receptor family which includes LDLR and VLDLR. These proteins are involved in the uptake of lipid rich proteins into cells and cell signaling. ApoER2 assists in endocytosis and signal transduction.
Rabbit anti-ApoER2 antibody recognizes human ApoER2 by immunoblotting (approx. 105kDa). Staining of the ApoER2 band in immunoblotting is specifically inhibited by the ApoER2 immunizing peptide.
synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 928-945 located near the C-terminus of human ApoER2, conjugated to KLH. This sequence is identical in mouse ApoER2.
Anti-ApoER2 antibody produced in rabbit has been used in western blot analysis.
Apolipoprotein E receptor 2 (ApoER2, also known as LRP8) play an important role in the endocytosis of plasma lipoproteins, including ApoE and cholesterol metabolism. In the central nervous system, ApoER2 mediates various neuronal signaling mechanisms during neuronal development, affecting neurite outgrowth, synapse formation and neuronal migration, and neuronal survival in response to acute damage. ApoER2 plays a central role in the reelin/Dab1 signaling pathway that controls neuronal positioning during brain development as well as long-term potentiation (LTP) in the adult brain.
