Alpha-2-macroglobulin receptor-associated protein (IPR038003)

Short name: A2-macroglobuin_RAP

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



The alpha-2-macroglobulin receptor-associated protein (RAP) is a intracellular glycoprotein that binds to the alpha-2-macroglobulin receptor (a2MR), also known as low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein (LRP), and other members of the low density lipoprotein receptor family. The protein inhibits binding of all currently known ligands of these receptors [PMID: 7774585, PMID: 8654360, PMID: 7538675].
