Apolipoproteins e

prominent protein constituents of plasma vldl, chylomicrons, and a subfraction of hdl as well as of remnant lipoproteins which are derived from the lipoprotein lipase-mediated intravascular catabolism of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins. Apolipoproteins e are recognised by the ldl receptor and apo e receptor. Any defect in the apo e metabolism leads to increased plasma apo e levels. A strong association has been found between high levels of apo e and type III hyperlipoproteinaemia.

Hi all I'm not a bio major so I don't know about proteins and lipids as much as you guys do. My question is about apolipoproteins in HDL. I know that apoA1 is the most abundant apolipoprotein species in HDL but is there apoA1 in LDL or VLDL as well? If there is, do they share the ...

Active Transportation in the human body

... component that binds to the receptor. I can think of two examples right now. 1. Cholesterol travels in the blood complexed with proteins called apolipoproteins in lipoprotein particles(LDL, HDL etc). When a cell takes up cholesterol from the blood, it takes up the whole particle by receptor ...
