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 C-type lectin family. It also belongs to the functionally defined scavenger receptor superfamily, whose members share the common ability to bind and internalize modified forms of Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL). LOX-1 is the first member of the class E scavenger receptor subfamily. It 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. LOX-1 has also been implicated as an intestinal receptor involved in the transcytosis of pancreatic bile salt-dependent lipase.
LOX-1 can be detected on activated endothelial cells, vascular smooth muscle cells, macrophages, intestinal cells and dendritic cells. 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 exists on the cell surface as covalent homodimers, which can further associate into non-covalent-linked oligomers. Cell surface LOX-1 can also be cleaved by yet unidentified proteases to release the soluble LOX-1 extracellular domain. Binding and endocytosis of oxidized LDL by LOX-1 induces oxidative stress, activates NF kappa B, and up regulates the expression of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 and matrix metalloproteases. LOX-1-dependent oxidized LDL uptake also induces apoptosis by inducing the expression of the pro-apoptotic Bax and down regulation of the anti-apoptotic Bcl-2.
The entire kit may be stored at -20°C for up to 1 year from the date of shipment. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles. The kit may be stored at 4°C for up to 6 months. For extended storage, it is recommended to store at -80°C.
