ApoE mimetic peptide reduces plasma lipid hydroperoxide content with a concomitant increase in HDL paraoxonase activity.

Academic Article


  • ApoE mimetic peptide possesses the putative receptor binding domain 141-150 (LRKLRKRLLR) of apoE covalently linked to the class A amphipathic helical peptide 18A. It dramatically reduces plasma cholesterol in dyslipidemic mouse and rabbit models. Recycling of apoE mimetic peptide increases the duration of preβ-HDL formation leading to extended anti-inflammatory and atheroprotective properties.
