PCSK9 binds to the EGF-A domain of the LDLR and signals LDLR degradation. Reduced LDLR levels result in decreased LDL (low density lipid) metabolism leading to hypercholesterolemia. _x000B__x000B_Additioanlly, PCSK9 may be implicated in the differentiation of cortical neurons and may also play a role in cholesterol homeostasis.

For an antibody that targets the blocking epitope of the PCSK-LDLR interaction use X2404P.
