SorLA also known as SorL1 or LR11, is a multiligand receptor belonging to the LDL receptor superfamily. It is also a member of vacuolar protein sorting-10 (Vps10) family and is enriched in the brain. SorLA acts as an sorting receptor for APP and prevents amyloidogenic processing of APP. Downregulation of SorLA has been found in patients with sporadic Alzheimer disease (AD). Currently SorLA has emerged as a potential target for AD therapy. (25404298)
