Polyclonal Goat Affinity Purified E B
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 CoA 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 4536aa residues. Apo B100 is the full length protein. Its gene has been mapped on the short arm of chromosome 2, with an ~length of 43kb and 29 exons. Apo B100 is synthesised in the liver. It is required for the assembly of very low density lipoproteins (VLDL). It does not interchange between lipoprotein particles, as do the other lipoproteins. It is found in IDL and LDL particles after the removal of the apolipoproteins A, E and C. Apo B48 is present in chylomicrons and chylomicron remnants. It plays an essential role in the intestinal absorption of dietary fats. Apo B48 is synthesized in the small intestine. It comprises the N-terminal 48% of apo B100. Apo B48 is the degraded protein.
