Lipoproteins

Lipoproteins

Any of the lipid-protein complexes in which lipids are transported in the blood. Lipoprotein particles consist of a spherical hydrophobic core of triglycerides or cholesteryl esters surrounded by an amphipathic monolayer of phospholipids, cholesterol, and apolipoproteins.

Re:

... longer). In such case, you want your primer to start at GTC and go on further. By lipoprotein motif he probably meant whether is it homologous to lipoproteins (you know, good and bad cholesterol, HDLP, LDLP). I don't know whether they have some conserved motif. 2) primers should be 20-25 bp long. ...

Cardiovascular disease (CVD)

... The cholesterol deposited in the walls may be attacked by free radicals released by phagocytes which may slow down the passage of low density lipoproteins which carry cholesterol back into the blood with the result of increased deposition of cholesterol. Atheromatous plaques roughen the lining ...

Is an ELISA plate really specific for protein adsorption?

Not lipids, DNAs, etc. ? What about lipoproteins and glycoproteins? Could anybody provide some basis for this specific interactions of protein molecules w/ surface groups at the bottom of the ELISA plate wells? Or links to some orginal research ...

HDL & LDL

I was wondering if anyone knows the mechanism by which LDL (low density lipoproteins) can remove cholesterol from HDL. Also, if anyone knows a good place to research this or atherosclerosis in general, that would be helpful. Thanks
