Technical Data
Lipoprotein Receptor, Low Density (LDLR, LDL Receptor)
Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) is one of the five major groups of lipoproteins, which in order of size, largest to smallest, are chylomicrons, VLDL, IDL, LDL and HDL, that enable lipids like cholesterol and triglycerides to be transported within the water-based bloodstream. Blood tests typically report LDL-C, the amount of cholesterol contained in LDL. In clinical context, mathematically calculated estimates of LDL-C are commonly used to estimate how much low density lipoproteins are driving progression of atherosclerosis. Direct LDL measurements are also available.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Flow Cytometry, Western Blot and Immunofluorescence Microscopy. Other applications have not been tested.
