Hi there!
Can somebody tell me why silencing the ApoB gene and subsequently lowering the LDL level leads to reduced plasms cholesterol?

Thanx

Well, LDL is a lipoprotein that transports cholesterol in the blood, composed of moderate amount of protein and a large amount of cholesterol....that's the connection
