ASGP-R 1, ASGPR 1, C-type lectin domain family 4 member H1, Hepatic lectin H1, HL-1
ASGR1 Molecule Background
ASGPR, a transmembrane C-type lectin, recognizes a wide variety of ligands that contain either terminal galactose (Gal) or N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) residues and has been identified as a highly selective receptor on hepatocytes. The ASGR is composed of both a major (ASGR1) and minor subunit (ASGR2). ASGR1 has been shown to be efficiently targeted to the plasma membrane and to undergo constitutive endocytosis and recycling and found mainly expressed in the human liver.
