Gene Symbol LRP1B
Synonyms LRP-1B | LRP-DIT | LRPDIT
Gene Description LRP1B, LDL receptor related protein 1B, is a tumor repressor (PMID: 20095042) and a cell surface receptor (PMID: 11384978) that may negatively regulate urokinase plasminogen activator receptor regeneration and cell migration (PMID: 12194987). Mutations in LRP1B are frequently observed in melanoma, lung cancer, esophageal squamous-cell carcinoma, head and neck squamous cancer, and gastric cancer (PMID: 31164891) and may be associated with high tumor mutational burden (PMID: 31164891, PMID: 31493933).
