Lectin-like oxidized low-density lipoprotein receptor-1

Unlike native low-density lipoprotein (LDL), modified LDL such as oxidized, carbamylated, or acetylated LDL are not recognized by the native LDL receptor (LDL-R).1 Rather, modified LDL binds to the lectin-like oxidized LDL receptor-1 (LOX-1).Upon activation by modified LDL, LOX-1 induces endothelial dysfunction and uptake of the modified lipids.2 Endothelial dysfunction is the first stage in atherogenesis.3 Thus, the identification of LOX-1 through expression cloning as a major receptor for oxLDL in endothelial cells (ECs) supports a putative role for modified LDL in atherogenesis and has taken centre stage in cardiovascular research.
