Low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein-1 (LRP-1) is a large transmembrane receptor. LRP-1 plays a role in diverse cellular processes, including lipid metabolism, cell growth, migration, and regeneration. Soluble form of LRP-1 (sLRP-1) can be detected in serum. sLRP-1 can serve as a biomarker of atherosclerosis and cardiometabolic diseases. This study investigated the concentrations of the circulating serum sLRP-1 in patients with retinopathy and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
