Low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 1B is a protein that in humans is encoded by the LRP1B gene.[1][2]


LRP1B belongs to the LDL receptor gene family. These receptors play a wide variety of roles in normal cell function and development due to their interactions with multiple ligands.[3]
