The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use at an assay dependent concentration. Use under non reducing condition. Predicted molecular weight: 96 kDa.
Use 2µg for 106 cells. ab170190-Mouse monoclonal IgG1, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
FunctionBinds VLDL and transports it into cells by endocytosis. In order to be internalized, the receptor-ligand complexes must first cluster into clathrin-coated pits. Binding to Reelin induces tyrosine phosphorylation of Dab1 and modulation of Tau phosphorylation.
Tissue specificityAbundant in heart and skeletal muscle; also ovary and kidney; not in liver.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in VLDLR are the cause of cerebellar ataxia mental retardation and dysequilibrium syndrome type 1 (CMARQ1) [MIM:224050]; also known as dysequilibrium syndrome (DES) or non-progressive cerebellar disorder with mental retardation. CMARQ1 is a congenital, non-progressive cerebellar ataxia associated with disturbed equilibrium, delayed ambulation, mental retardation and cerebellar hypoplasia. Additional features include short stature, strabismus, pes planus and, rarely, seizures.
Sequence similaritiesContains 3 EGF-like domains. Contains 8 LDL-receptor class A domains. Contains 6 LDL-receptor class B repeats.
Post-translational modificationsUbiquitinated at Lys-839 by MYLIP leading to degradation.
Overlay histogram showing HEK293 cells stained with ab75591 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab75591, 2µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed.

Flow cytometry analysis of Human THP-1 cell lines, staining VLDL Receptor (red histogram) with ab75591.
Cells were taken from suspension culture and washed with PBS/BSA before fixation. Cells were blocked and permeabilized in 10% donkey serum/0.3 M glycine/0.1% BSA/0.1% Tween-20 in PBS for 20 mins at room temperature. The sample was incubated with the primary antibody (2 µg/106 cells in 0.1% BSA/0.1% Tween-20 in PBS) for 30 minutes at 22°C. A FITC-conjugated donkey anti-mouse polyclonal IgG (30 µg/ml) was used as the secondary antibody.
