Home Gene of the month LGR5

LGR5 - Adult Stem Cell Marker


LGR5 (leucine-rich repeat-containing G-protein-coupled receptor 5, also known as GPR49) is an orphan G-protein coupled receptor, and a target of the Wnt signaling pathway. This membrane protein is expressed in the eye, brain, hair follicle, mammary gland, reproductive organs, stomach and intestinal tract. LGR5 is closely related to tumorgenesis and is found active in various types of cancer, including colorectal, liver and ovarian cancer. Although its function is unclear, LGR5 is considered as a stem cell marker, especially for the tissues of intestine, colon, stomach and hair follicle.

OriGene has developed the world’s first mouse monoclonal antibody against LGR5 for flow cytometry. In addition, OriGene offers:
