Summaries for LRP3 Gene

GeneCards Summary for LRP3 Gene

LRP3 (Low Density Lipoprotein Receptor-Related Protein 3) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is LRP10.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for LRP3 Gene

  • Probable receptor, which may be involved in the internalization of lipophilic molecules and/or signal transduction. Its precise role is however unclear, since it does not bind to very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) or to LRPAP1 in vitro
