Type II membrane glycoprotein LOX-1 (lectin-like oxidized LDL receptor-1) is a 40-50kDa class E scavenger receptor, expressed by endothelial cells, macrophages, activated platelets and smooth muscle cells. LOX-1 binds to a wide range of ligands, including oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL), hypochlorite modified high-density lipoprotein (HDL), aged/apoptotic cells, activated platelets and bacteria, reflecting its versatile physiological functions. Expression of the LOX-1 gene is upregulated by oxLDL and the binding of LOX-1 to oxLDL results in the activation of NF-kappaB. Furthermore, LOX-1 antibodies have been shown to suppress the oxidized HDL (oxHDL) activation of NF-KappaB in endothelial cells, suggesting that this activation may be due to the binding of oxHDL to LOX-1.
