FunctionFunctions as a sorting receptor in the Golgi compartment and as a clearance receptor on the cell surface. Required for protein transport from the Golgi apparatus to the lysosomes by a pathway that is independent of the mannose-6-phosphate receptor (M6PR). Also required for protein transport from the Golgi apparatus to the endosomes. Promotes neuronal apoptosis by mediating endocytosis of the proapoptotic precursor forms of BDNF (proBDNF) and NGFB (proNGFB). Also acts as a receptor for neurotensin. May promote mineralization of the extracellular matrix during osteogenic differentiation by scavenging extracellular LPL. Probably required in adipocytes for the formation of specialized storage vesicles containing the glucose transporter SLC2A4/GLUT4 (GLUT4 storage vesicles, or GSVs). These vesicles provide a stable pool of SLC2A4 and confer increased responsiveness to insulin. May also mediate transport from the endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi.
Tissue specificityExpressed at high levels in brain, spinal cord, heart, skeletal muscle, thyroid, placenta and testis. Expressed at lower levels in lymphoid organs, kidney, colon and liver.
Involvement in diseaseNote=A common polymorphism located in a non-coding region between CELSR2 and PSRC1 alters a CEBP transcription factor binding site and is responsible for changes in hepatic expression of SORT1. Altered SORT1 expression in liver affects low density lipoprotein cholesterol levels in plasma and is associated with susceptibility to myocardial infarction.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the VPS10-related sortilin family. SORT1 subfamily.
Contains 9 BNR repeats.
DomainThe N-terminal propeptide may facilitate precursor transport within the Golgi stack. Intrachain binding of the N-terminal propeptide and the extracellular domain may also inhibit premature ligand binding.
The extracellular domain may be shed following protease cleavage in some cell types.
modificationsThe N-terminal propeptide is cleaved by furin and possibly other homologous proteases.
Cellular localizationMembrane. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Endosome membrane. Golgi apparatus > Golgi stack membrane. Lysosome membrane. Nucleus membrane. Cell membrane. Lysosome membrane. Localized to membranes of the endoplasmic reticulum, endosomes, Golgi stack, lysosomes and nucleus. A small fraction of the protein is also localized to the plasma membrane. May also be found in SLC2A4/GLUT4 storage vesicles (GSVs) in adipocytes. Localization to the plasma membrane in adipocytes may be enhanced by insulin.

ab16640 was shown to specifically react with Sortilin/NT3 in wild-type HAP1 cells. No band was observed when Sortilin/NT3 knockout samples were examined. Wild-type and Sortilin/NT3 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab16640 and ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) were diluted 1 µg/mL and 1/10,000 respectively and incubated overnight at 4°C. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preadsorbed (ab216773) and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preadsorbed (ab216776) secondary antibodies at 1/10,000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.
ab16640 staining cultured mouse astrocytes by ICC/IF. The cultured cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde for 5 minutes and blocked with 10% donkey serum in 0.1% PBS-0.3% TritonX for 30 minutes at 24°C. The cultured cells were then stained with ab16640 at 1/1000 in 0.3% TritonX with 0.1% PBS and 10% donkey serum for 4h at 24°C. An Alexa Fluro 488 donkey anti-rabbit polyclonal antibody at 1/1000 was used as the secondary antibody. Nuclei were stained with 1.43µM Hoechst and can be observed in blue. Sortilin expressed in the cytosol mainly in trans-golgi compartments.

Immunofluorescent staining for Sortilin/NT3 in rat cortical neurons using ab16640. The staining is cytoplasmic and punctate of many cells such as cortical neurons. The image was taken with a X20 objective.
Protocol details: Rats were intracardially perfused with 4% paraformaldehyde. Whole brain tissue was post-fixed overnight in the same fixative, cryoprotected in 20% sucrose and frozen in OCT and then cut on cryostat (30µm coronal sections). IHC was perfored in free floating with fixed tissues (rat brain sections). Primary antibody was incubated overnight at 1/3000 at room temperature
