The human lipolysis-stimulated lipoprotein receptor (LSR, LISCH) probably plays a role in the clearance of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins from blood, allowing their subsequent uptake into cells. Its affinity is highest for those lipoproteins most susceptible to lipolysis such as chylomicrons, LDL and VLDL. Human LSR function is inferred from mouse Lsr expression, functional and gene silencing studies (Yen et al. 1999, Mesli et al. 2004, Yen et al. 2008). Lsr inactivation in mice during embryogenesis resulted in death and indicated expression of Lsr was critical for liver and embryonic development (Mesli et al. 2004). This reaction shows LSR binding VLDL.
