Detection of Human LRP-5 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line. PVDF Membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Human LRP-5 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF6646) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for LRP-5 at approximately 185 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

LRP-5 (low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 5) is a 1615 amino acid (aa), ~180‑200 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein. The 1353 aa extracellular domain (ECD) contains 20 class B LDLR, 4 EGF‑like, and 3 class A LDLR repeats. Human LRP-5 aa 745-1097 encompasses class B LDLR repeats #12-17 and EGF‑like repeat #3. It shares 94% aa identity with mouse and rat LRP-5, and 70% aa identity with human LRP-6 within corresponding regions. LRP-5 and LRP-6 mediate DKK effects on Wnt signaling. LRP-5 polymorphisms correlate with susceptibility and resistance to osteoporosis.
