Plasmid containing the gene for Stable Receptor-Associated Protein (RAP).
Stable Receptor-Associated Protein (RAP) is an antagonist of lipoprotein receptor-related protein 1 (LRP1). When RAP is administered IV post-stroke, it results in significant regaining of motor activity and a reduction in BBB leakage. RAP may also hold therapeutic promise in management of risk of bleeding in hemophiliac patients. The molecule binds to lipoprotein receptor-related protein 1 (LRP1) with high affinity and inhibits LRP1 function both in vitro and in vivo, suggesting that the novel RAP may be a useful tool in understanding lipoprotein metabolism, cell signaling, modulation of blood brain barrier integrity, and blood coagulation and fibrinolysis.
