Structure and function of apolipoprotein A-I and high-density lipoprotein.

Academic Article


  • Structural biology and molecular modeling have provided intriguing insights into the atomic details of the lipid-associated structure of the major protein component of HDL, apo A-I. For the first time, an atomic resolution map is available for future studies of the molecular interactions of HDL in such biological processes as ABC1-regulated HDL assembly, LCAT activation, receptor binding, reverse lipid transport and HDL heterogeneity. Within the context of this paradigm, the current review summarizes the state of HDL research.
