Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Goat Purified E
Lipids (triglyceride (TG), cholesterol (Chol), phospholipids (PL), cholesteryl esters (CE)) are insoluble in plasma. These lipids combine with apolipoproteins to form lipoproteins. This process solubilizes lipids in plasma. Lipoproteins provide a transport system for lipids. They also play an important role in lipoprotein receptor recognition and regulation of certain enzymes in lipoprotein metabolism. Apolipoprotein B plays an essential role in lipid transport and metabolism. Apo B may regulate cholesterol synthesis through its interaction with specific cell membrane receptors and by inhibition of HMG Co A reductase. This enzyme has been identified as the rate controlling enzyme in cholesterol biosynthesis. Apo B may be important in the genesis of atherosclerosis. Apo B is the major protein moiety of all lipoproteins other than high density lipoprotein (HDL) in plasma. Increased levels of apo B100 are associated with an increased risk of coronary artery disease. Apo B exists in human plasma as two isoforms: apo B48 and apo B100. Apo B100 is the major physiological ligand for the LDL receptor. It contains 4536 amino acid residues. Apo B100 is the full length protein. Its gene has been mapped on the short arm of chromosome 2, with an approximate length of 43 kilobases and 29 exon.
