Reproducibility is key to advancing scientific discovery and accelerating scientists’ next breakthrough.
Abcam is leading the way with our range of recombinant antibodies, knockout-validated antibodies and knockout cell lines, all of which support improved reproducibility.
We are also planning to innovate the way in which we present recommended applications and species on our product datasheets, so that only applications & species that have been tested in our own labs, our suppliers or by selected trusted collaborators are covered by our Abpromise™ guarantee.
In preparation for this, we have started to update the applications & species that this product is Abpromise guaranteed for.
We are also updating the applications & species that this product has been “predicted to work with,” however this information is not covered by our Abpromise guarantee.
Applications & species from publications and Abreviews that have not been tested in our own labs or in those of our suppliers are not covered by the Abpromise guarantee.

FunctionComponent of the Wnt-Fzd-LRP5-LRP6 complex that triggers beta-catenin signaling through inducing aggregation of receptor-ligand complexes into ribosome-sized signalsomes. Cell-surface coreceptor of Wnt/beta-catenin signaling, which plays a pivotal role in bone formation. The Wnt-induced Fzd/LRP6 coreceptor complex recruits DVL1 polymers to the plasma membrane which, in turn, recruits the AXIN1/GSK3B-complex to the cell surface promoting the formation of signalsomes and inhibiting AXIN1/GSK3-mediated phosphorylation and destruction of beta-catenin. Appears be required for postnatal control of vascular regression in the eye. Required for posterior patterning of the epiblast during gastrulation.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed, with the highest level of expression in the liver.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in LRP5 are the cause of vitreoretinopathy exudative type 4 (EVR4) [MIM:601813]. EVR4 is a disorder of the retinal vasculature characterized by an abrupt cessation of growth of peripheral capillaries, leading to an avascular peripheral retina. This may lead to compensatory retinal neovascularization, which is thought to be induced by hypoxia from the initial avascular insult. New vessels are prone to leakage and rupture causing exudates and bleeding, followed by scarring, retinal detachment and blindness. Clinical features can be highly variable, even within the same family. Patients with mild forms of the disease are asymptomatic, and their only disease related abnormality is an arc of avascular retina in the extreme temporal periphery. EVR4 inheritance can be autosomal dominant or recessive.
Genetic variations in LRP5 are a cause of susceptibility to osteoporosis (OSTEOP) [MIM:166710]; also known as senile osteoporosis or postmenopausal osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is characterized by reduced bone mass, disruption of bone microarchitecture without alteration in the composition of bone. Osteoporotic bones are more at risk of fracture.
Defects in LRP5 are the cause of osteoporosis-pseudoglioma syndrome (OPPG) [MIM:259770]; also known as osteogenesis imperfecta ocular form. OPPG is a recessive disorder characterized by very low bone mass and blindness. Individualy with OPPG are prone to develop bone fractures and deformations and have various eye abnormalities, including phthisis bulbi, retinal detachments, falciform folds or persistent vitreal vasculature.
Defects in LRP5 are a cause of high bone mass trait (HBM) [MIM:601884]. HBM is a rare phenotype characterized by exceptionally dense bones. HBM individuals show otherwise a completely normal skeletal structure and no other unusual clinical findings.
Defects in LRP5 are a cause of endosteal hyperostosis Worth type (WENHY) [MIM:144750]; also known as autosomal dominant osteosclerosis. WENHY is an autosomal dominant sclerosing bone dysplasia clinically characterized by elongation of the mandible, increased gonial angle, flattened forehead, and the presence of a slowly enlarging osseous prominence of the hard palate (torus palatinus). Serum calcium, phosphorus and alkaline phosphatase levels are normal. Radiologically, it is characterized by early thickening of the endosteum of long bones, the skull and of the mandible. With advancing age, the trabeculae of the metaphysis become thickened. WENHY becomes clinically and radiologically evident by adolescence, does not cause deformity except in the skull and mandible, and is not associated with bone pain or fracture. Affected patients have normal height, proportion, intelligence and longevity.
Defects in LRP5 are the cause of osteopetrosis autosomal dominant type 1 (OPTA1) [MIM:607634]. Osteopetrosis is a rare genetic disease characterized by abnormally dense bone, due to defective resorption of immature bone. The disorder occurs in two forms: a severe autosomal recessive form occurring in utero, infancy, or childhood, and a benign autosomal dominant form occurring in adolescence or adulthood. OPTA1 is characterized by generalized osteosclerosis most pronounced in the cranial vault. Patients are often asymptomatic, but some suffer from pain and hearing loss. It appears to be the only type of osteopetrosis not associated with an increased fracture rate.
Defects in LRP5 are the cause of van Buchem disease type 2 (VBCH2)[MIM:607636]. VBCH2 is an autosomal dominant sclerosing bone dysplasia characterized by cranial osteosclerosis, thickened calvaria and cortices of long bones, enlarged mandible and normal serum alkaline phosphatase levels.
