Sortilin was originally purified from human brain tissue and was identified as a new lipoprotein receptor, which was later identified as a multifunctional sorting receptor of the VPS10P-domain receptor family. Although Sortilin is predominately expressed in neurons of the central and the peripheral nervous systems, it is also expressed in metabolic tissues including liver. Sortilin functions as a sorting receptor in the Golgi compartment and as a clearance receptor on the cell surface. Sortilin is critical for lipid metabolism, and it has been implicated in lipid disorders. Sortilin is also an APOE receptor implicated in Alzheimer disease.
