General description

Low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein-6 (LRP6) is expressed primarily in the central nervous system. This protein is made up of three subdomains in the extracellular domain, such as epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like domain, YWTD-type β-propeller domain, and low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) type A (LA) domain. The LRP6 gene is located on the human chromosome at 12p13.2.


Anti-LRP6 (C-terminal region) specifically recognizes human LRP6.


Anti-LRP6 (C-terminal region) antibody produced in rabbit may be used in immunoblotting and immunoprecipitation.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein-6 (LRP6) is essential for proper brain development. The LRP6 protein forms a Wnt-Frizzled (Fz)-LRP6 complex that recruits axin to the plasma membrane resulting in the inhibition of βcatenin phosphorylation and degradation, and activation of T-cell factor (TCF)/lymphoid enhancer-binding factor-1 (LEF-1)-dependent transcription. Deletion of the LRP6 gene results in severe brain abnormalities. LRP6 also plays a central role in human disease. Mutations in the LRP6 gene are associated with coronary heart disease and osteoporosis.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.

Storage and Stability

Store at –20 °C. For continuous use, the product may be stored at 2–8 °C for up to one month. For extended storage, freeze in working aliquots at –20 °C. Repeated freezing and thawing, or storage in “frost-free” freezers, is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution by centrifugation before use. Working dilutions should be discarded if not used within 12 hours.


Unless otherwise stated in our catalog or other company documentation accompanying the product(s), our products are intended for research use only and are not to be used for any other purpose, which includes but is not limited to, unauthorized commercial uses, in vitro diagnostic uses, ex vivo or in vivo therapeutic uses or any type of consumption or application to humans or animals.

Mice with mutations in the Wnt coreceptor low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein-6 (LRP6) have a smaller and severely disorganized dorsal thalamus and lack thalamocortical projections. Using molecular markers, we showed that most dorsal thalamic and epithalamic neurons were missing, and most...
