LOX1 (Oxidized Low-density Lipoprotein Receptor 1, Ox-LDL Receptor 1, C-type Lectin Domain Family 8 Member A, Lectin-like Oxidized LDL Receptor 1, LOX-1, Lectin-like oxLDL Receptor 1, hLOX-1, Lectin-type Oxidized LDL Receptor 1, OLR1, CLEC8A)
Description:
Lectin-like oxidized low-density-lipoprotein receptor-1 (LOX-1), also known as oxidized low-density-lipoprotein receptor-1 (OLR-1), belongs to the C-type lectin family. LOX-1 binds and supports the internalization of multiple structurally unrelated macromolecules including oxidized LDL, advanced glycation end products (AGE), activated platelets, bacteria, apoptotic or aged cells, and heat shock proteins. Human LOX-1 gene encodes a 273aa protein with a short N-terminal intracellular domain, a transmembrane domain, an extracellular stalk/neck region followed a C-type lectin-like domain (CTLD). The expression of LOX-1 is induced by proinflammatory or proatherogenic stimuli, as well as by oxidized LDL itself and hemodynamic or oxidative stress. LOX-1-dependent oxidized LDL uptake also induces apoptosis by inducing the expression of the pro-apoptotic Bax and downregulation of the anti-apoptotic Bcl-2.
