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. (C) 2000 Lippincott Williams and Wilkins.
