FunctionProbable receptor, which may be involved in the internalization of lipophilic molecules and/or signal transduction. Its precise role is however unclear, since it does not bind to very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) or to LRPAP1 in vitro.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed. Highly expressed in skeletal muscle and ovary. Expressed at intermediate level in heart, brain, liver, pancreas, prostate and small intestine. Weakly expressed in testis, colon and leukocyte.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the LDLR family. Contains 2 CUB domains. Contains 4 LDL-receptor class A domains.
