Gene: Vldlr (very low density lipoprotein receptor) Mus musculus
Symbol: Vldlr
Name: very low density lipoprotein receptor
Description: Exhibits reelin receptor activity. Involved in nervous system development; positive regulation of protein kinase activity; and reelin-mediated signaling pathway. Localizes to extracellular space. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; musculoskeletal system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Used to study age related macular degeneration 1. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease; cerebellar ataxia, mental retardation and dysequlibrium syndrome; and dementia. Orthologous to human VLDLR (very low density lipoprotein receptor); PARTICIPATES IN Reelin signaling pathway; altered Reelin signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dichloroethane; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
