The protein encoded by this gene is an endocytic receptor involved in several cellular processes including intracellular signaling lipid homeostasis and clearance of apoptotic cells. In addition the encoded protein is necessary for the A2M-mediated clearance of secreted amyloid precursor protein and beta-amyloid the main component of amyloid plaques found in Alzheimer patients. Expression of this gene decreases with age and has been found to be lower than controls in brain tissue from Alzheimer patients. [provided by RefSeq Jan 2010]
