Apolipoproteins A
MeSH HeadingApolipoproteins A
Tree NumberD10.532.091.200
Tree NumberD12.776.070.400.200
Tree NumberD12.776.521.120.200
Annotationdo not confuse with APOLIPOPROTEIN (A)
Scope NoteStructural proteins of the alpha-lipoproteins ( HIGH DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS), including APOLIPOPROTEIN A-I and APOLIPOPROTEIN A-II. They can modulate the activity of LECITHIN CHOLESTEROL ACYLTRANSFERASE. These apolipoproteins are low in atherosclerotic patients. They are either absent or present in extremely low plasma concentration in TANGIER DISEASE.
