Immunogen Human LRP/alpha2MR
Clone 8B8
Isotype IgG1
Specificity 8B8 specifically reacts with the 85 kDa β-chain of human LRP/α2MR which is expressed in a restricted spectrum of cell types (for a recent review cf. Herz & Strickland). A strong immunohistochemical reaction is seen in hepato-cytes, tissue macrophages, subsets of neurones and as-trocytes in the central nervous system, fibroblasts, smooth muscle cells, and monocyte-derived foam cells in athero-sclerotic lesions in the arterial wall. The antibody can also be used for the characterization of a subset of myelo-monocytic subtypes of chronic and acute leukemia (CD 91).
Purification Affinity Chromatography on Protein A.
Alternative Name CD91 / LRP1 (LRP1 Antibody Abstract)
Background Low density lipoprotein receptor-related protein (also known as low density LRP, LRP1, alpha-2-macroglobulin receptor or Apolipoprotein E receptor) is an endocytotic receptor that is involved both in endocytosis and in phagocytosis of apoptotic cells. It is required for early embryonic development, is involved in cellular lipid homeostasis, and may play a role in APP metabolism, kinase-dependent intracellular signalling, neuronal calcium signalling and neurotransmission. Low density LRP also plays a role in the plasma clearance of chylomicron remnants and activated LRPAP1 (alpha-2-macroglobulin), and is involved in the local metabolism of complexes of plasminogen activators and their endogenous ligands. Low density LPR is postulated to be one of the major players in host resistance to HIV. The precursor low density LRP molecule is cleaved post-translationally to form a 85 kDa membrane-spanning subunit (LRP-85) and a 515 kDa large extracellular domain (LRP-515), which remains non-covalently associated with LRP-85. Following cleavage, the intracellular domain (LPRICD) is present in both the cytoplasm and the nucleus.Synonyms: A2MR, APOER, APR, Alpha-2-macroglobulin receptor, Apolipoprotein E receptor, Prolow-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 1
