Lectin-Like Oxidized LDL Receptor 1 (LOX-1)

Lectin-like Oxidized Low-density Lipoprotein Receptor 1 (LOX-1), also known as Oxidized Low-density Lipoprotein Receptor 1 (OLR-1), is a type II transmembrane receptor belonging to the class E scavenger receptor (SR-E) subfamily of the C-type lectin family. It binds and supports the internalization of multiple structurally unrelated macromolecules. It exists on the cell surface as covalent homodimers that can further associate into non-covalently-linked oligomers. Cell surface LOX-1 can also be cleaved to release the soluble LOX-1 extracellular domain.
