asialoglycoprotein receptor


Also found in: Wikipedia.

a·si·a·lo·gly·co·pro·tein re·cep·tor

a surface receptor found in hepatocytes that binds galactose-terminal glycoproteins; thus, this receptor removes those proteins from circulation and they are in turn acted on by hepatocyte lysosomes.

Subsequent cell experiments revealed that due to the deletion, the serried gene -- ASGR1 -- is unable to establish the normal structure and function of the protein called the asialoglycoprotein receptor.
03 mg/kg of recombinant ApoE was able to fully restore the activity of an siRNA formulated in an iLNP; and,aA alternatively, in the same ApoE knockout model, silencing activity was found to be restored by the use of an exogenous GalNAc ligand that targets the iLNP to the asialoglycoprotein receptor (ASGR) expressed on hepatocytes, with as little as 0.
