    Presynaptic LRP4 promotes synapse number and function of excitatory CNS neurons

    Timothy J Mosca et al.
    The cell surface receptor LRP4, long recognized for postsynaptic functions, also plays a role as a presynaptic determinant of synapse formation by functioning through a downstream kinase pathway.

    Blockade of the LRP16-PKR-NF-κB signaling axis sensitizes colorectal carcinoma cells to DNA-damaging cytotoxic therapy

    Xiaolei Li et al.
    Leukemia-Related Protein 16 (LRP16), a member of the macro domain family, plays a crucial role in orchestrating genotoxicity-initiated NF-κB signaling in the colon and the pathophysiological relevance of NF-κB activation induced by LRP16 in colonic cell survival/recovery from extrinsic DNA damage.

    Structural basis of GSK-3 inhibition by N-terminal phosphorylation and by the Wnt receptor LRP6

    Jennifer L Stamos et al.
    Phosphorylation of the Wnt receptor LRP6 directly inhibits glycogen synthase kinase-3 by acting as a pseudosubstrate that stabilizes an active conformation of the enzyme, identical to autoinhibition by phosphorylation of its N terminus.

    LRP1 integrates murine macrophage cholesterol homeostasis and inflammatory responses in atherosclerosis

    Xunde Xian et al.
    Tyrosine phosphorylation of the intracellular domain of LRP1 serves as a molecular switch to regulate cellular cholesterol homeostasis through nuclear hormone receptor-mediated regulation of the cellular cholesterol exporter ABCA1.

    LRP1 regulates peroxisome biogenesis and cholesterol homeostasis in oligodendrocytes and is required for proper CNS myelin development and repair

    Jing-Ping Lin et al.
    In oligodendrocyte progenitor cells, lipid metabolism and peroxisome biogenesis are regulated by the low-density lipoprotein related-receptor-1, and if disrupted, impair proper white matter development and adult repair.

    APP interacts with LRP4 and agrin to coordinate the development of the neuromuscular junction in mice

    Hong Y Choi et al.
    Proteins implicated in Alzheimer’s disease, including amyloid precursor protein and ApoE receptors, interact with each other and with a signalling molecule called agrin to influence the development of the neuromuscular junction.

    LARP1 functions as a molecular switch for mTORC1-mediated translation of an essential class of mRNAs

    Sungki Hong et al.
    LARP1 turns off and on the translation of an essential class of mRNAs by acting as a key effecter and regulator for mTORC1.

    How lamina-associated polypeptide 1 (LAP1) activates Torsin

    Brian A Sosa et al.
    LAP1 adopts an AAA+ like fold that, while unable to bind nucleotide, can enhance ATPase activity in the neighboring TorsinA protomer in an unusual heterohexameric ring, via an arginine finger.

    Synaptic plasticity and cognitive function are disrupted in the absence of Lrp4

    Andrea M Gomez et al.
    Lrp4 mutant mice display profound deficits in cognitive tasks that assess learning and memory with disruptions in the subcellular organization of synaptic inputs and synaptic plasticity in the hippocampus.

    Actin filaments target the oligomeric maturation of the dynamin GTPase Drp1 to mitochondrial fission sites

    Wei-ke Ji et al.
    A key cellular process is controlled by altering a balance, rather than through an off/on mechanism.
