Megalin/LRP2 in Human Kidney. Megalin/LRP2 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human kidney using Mouse Anti-Human Megalin/LRP2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB9578) at 5 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Mouse IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (Catalog # VC001). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to convoluted tubules.

Background: Megalin/LRP2

Megalin, also known as the low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 2 (LRP2), is a large type I transmembrane cell surface protein. This glycoprotein is a multi‑ligand endocytic receptor that is expressed in many different tissues but primarily in absorptive epithilial tissues such as the kidney (1). The Megalin protein is critical for the re-uptake of numerous ligands, including lipoproteins, sterols, vitamin-binding proteins, and hormones. This protein also has a role in cell-signaling. Mutations in this gene cause Donnai-Barrow Syndrome (DBS) and Facio-Oculoacoustico-Renal Syndrome (FOAR) (1). Megalin is consisting of a 25 amino acid (aa) probable N‑terminal signal peptide sequence, a 4400 aa extracellular region, a 22 aa single transmembrane domain, and a 213 aa C‑terminal cytoplasmic tail. The entire extracellular region is made up of 36 class A motifs of putative ligand-binding domains arranged in four distinct clusters, 16 growth factor repeats separated by 8 YWTD spacer regions, and 1 epidermal growth factor-like repeat (2). The extracellular ligand-binding-domains bind diverse macromolecules including albumin, apolipoproteins B and E, and lipoprotein lipase (3). The amino acid 3510-3964 encodes the fourth class A motif cluster in human Megalin, termed Megalin C4. Human Megalin C4 shares 77% and 74% identity with mouse and rat Megalin C4.
