LMBR1L, also known as LIMR (lipocalin-1-interacting membrane receptor), interacts with lipocalin-1 (Lcn-1), a lipocalin member produced by a number of secretory glands and tissues and known to bind a variety of lipophilic compounds. LMBR1L is a 489-amino acid protein with a predicted molecular mass of 55 kDa and 9 putative transmembrane helices. LMBR1L has been shown to mediate cellular uptake of LMBR1L, thus it is characterized as a endocytic receptor. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described.
