Summary Megalin and cubilin are endocytic receptors hugely expressed within the endocytic gear of the renal proximal tubule. those receptors seem to be accountable for the tubular clearance of such a lot proteins filtered within the glomeruli. Cubilin is a peripheral membrane protein, and as a result it doesn't have an endocytosis signaling series. it seems that megalin is liable for internalization of cubilin and its ligands as well as internalizing its personal ligands. The proteinuria saw in megalin-deficient mice, in canine missing useful cubilin, and in sufferers with targeted mutations of the cubilin gene illustrates the significance of the receptors.
