Mesoderm Development LRP Chaperone is encoded by the gene MESD. MESD is a member of the MESD family. MESD is a chaperone specifically assisting the folding of beta-propeller/EGF modules within the family of low-density lipoprotein receptors (LDLRs). MESD acts as a modulator of the Wnt pathway through chaperoning the coreceptors of the canonical Wnt pathway, LRP5 and LRP6, to the plasma membrane. MESD is essential for the specification of embryonic polarity and mesoderm induction. MESD plays an essential role neuromuscular junction (NMJ) formation by promoting cell-surface expression of LRP4. MESD is expressed in many tissues, but not in skeletal muscles. Diseases associated with MESD include Osteogenesis Imperfecta, Type Xx and Epilepsy, Nocturnal Frontal Lobe, 2.
