SAN DIEGO, CA (PRWEB) November 04, 2012
BPS Bioscience, Inc. (“BPS”) announced today the availability of PCSK9 and LDLR proteins, a PCSK9-LDLR Binding Assay Kit, and PCSK9 Screening/Profiling Services for cholesterol-related research. PCSK9 is a critical regulator of cholesterol metabolism through its interaction with the hepatic LDL receptor (LDLR). Circulating PCSK9 binds to the extracellular EGF-like domain of LDLR, followed by endocytosis and lysosomal degradation of the PCSK9-LDLR complex. Inhibiting the PCSK9-LDLR interaction is an increasingly desirable drug target for lowering LDL-cholesterol levels because of the great demand for new drugs to replace or supplement statins. The newly added research tools are invaluable for studying cholesterol metabolism, atherosclerosis, stroke, heart disease, and other diseases related to cardiovascular disorders. They complement the broad array of protein products and world class custom biochemical services already offered by BPS.
