Abstract

The current paper describes a solid phase ligand binding assay for the low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor that takes advantage of the domain structure of the protein. An antibody directed against one domain, e.g. the cytoplasmic tail, is adsorbed to a microtiter well. A detergent solution containing the LDL receptor is added, and the receptor is allowed to bind to the antibody. The wells are then washed, and one of the following radioiodinated ligands is added: 125I-LDL or an 125I-labeled monoclonal antibody directed against a different domain than the antibody adsorbed to the well. Under these conditions, the human LDL receptor shows high affinity for 125I-LDL and for 125I-IgG-HL1, a mo..
