    • Function

      Functions 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 specificity

      Expressed 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 disease

      Note=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 similarities

      Belongs to the VPS10-related sortilin family. SORT1 subfamily.
      Contains 9 BNR repeats.
    • Domain

      The 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.
    • Post-translational

      The N-terminal propeptide is cleaved by furin and possibly other homologous proteases.
    • Cellular localization

      Membrane. 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.

    • ab36959 staining Sortilin/NT3 in Human primary monocytes and macrophages by Flow Cytometry. The sample was incubated with the primary antibody (5µg/ml in DPBS + 2% FBS and 0.1% sodium azide) for 1 hour at 4°C. An Alexa Fluor® 647 -conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (5µg/ml) was used as the secondary antibody.
      Gating Strategy: Either monocytes or macrophages.

      Red - sortilin, blue - control IgG.
