Summaries for APOBR Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for APOBR Gene

  • Apolipoprotein B48 receptor is a macrophage receptor that binds to the apolipoprotein B48 of dietary triglyceride (TG)-rich lipoproteins. This receptor may provide essential lipids, lipid-soluble vitamins and other nutrients to reticuloendothelial cells. If overwhelmed with elevated plasma triglyceride, the apolipoprotein B48 receptor may contribute to foam cell formation, endothelial dysfunction, and atherothrombogenesis.

GeneCards Summary for APOBR Gene

APOBR (Apolipoprotein B Receptor) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include very-low-density lipoprotein particle receptor activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for APOBR Gene

  • Macrophage receptor that binds to the apolipoprotein B48 (APOB) of dietary triglyceride (TG)-rich lipoproteins (TRL) or to a like domain of APOB in hypertriglyceridemic very low density lipoprotein (HTG-VLDL). Binds and internalizes TRL when out of the context of the macrophage. May provide essential lipids to reticuloendothelial cells. Could also be involved in foam cell formation with elevated TRL and remnant lipoprotein (RLP). Mediates the rapid high-affinity uptake of chylomicrons (CM), HTG-VLDL, and trypsinized (tryp) VLDL devoid of APOE in vitro in macrophages.

Molecular function for APOBR Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function: Macrophage receptor that binds to the apolipoprotein B48 (APOB) of dietary triglyceride (TG)-rich lipoproteins (TRL) or to a like domain of APOB in hypertriglyceridemic very low density lipoprotein (HTG-VLDL). Binds and internalizes TRL when out of the context of the macrophage. May provide essential lipids to reticuloendothelial cells. Could also be involved in foam cell formation with elevated TRL and remnant lipoprotein (RLP). Mediates the rapid high-affinity uptake of chylomicrons (CM), HTG-VLDL, and trypsinized (tryp) VLDL devoid of APOE in vitro in macrophages.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Induction: Suppressed significantly by PPARA and PPARG in THP-1 and blood-borne monocyte-macrophages. Decreased after pitavastatin treatment in peripheral blood macrophages and remnant lipoprotein (RLP)-induced foam cell formation.
