Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits low-density lipoprotein particle receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including inflammatory response; leukocyte cell-cell adhesion; and lipoprotein metabolic process. Predicted to localize to nucleoplasm; plasma membrane; and receptor complex. Is expressed in blood vessel; embryo; heart; and primitive ventricle. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cerebral amyloid angiopathy; coronary artery disease; and myocardial infarction. Orthologous to human OLR1 (oxidized low density lipoprotein receptor 1).
