Details for receptor: LRP6

EndoNet ID: ENR00646

To link to the content of EndoNet use the EndoNet ID that is given on the detail pages in the format ENX0000, where X is a place holder for the type of the component (e. g. R for receptor or C for anatomical structure).
As URL for the linking append this ID to the detail page for this type of component.
For an hormone that would be:

http://endonet.bioinf.med.uni-goettingen.de/hormone/ENH00000

It is also possible to use the search of EndoNet to link to the right detail page. The URL should look like

http://endonet.bioinf.med.uni-goettingen.de/search/ENC00000
If the search pattern is unambigious the user is directed to the corresponding detail page.

Synonyms

  • LRP6
  • low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 6
  • LDL-receptor-related protein 6

General information

  • LDL-receptor-related protein 6 is a receptor for Dickkopf proteins. [1]
  • Activation of Wnt/β-catenin signaling occurs upon binding of Wnt to the 7-transmembrane domain–spanning frizzled receptor and low-density lipoprotein receptor–related protein 5 and 6 (LRP5/6) coreceptors. [2]
  • LRP5/6 coreceptor activity is inhibited by members of the sclerostin (SOST gene product) and Dickkopf (Dkk) families, all of which bind LRP5/6. [2]
