C-reactive protein (CRP), an acute-phase reactant, is present in atherosclerotic human arterial intima in association with lipids. In the present work we studied interactions between CRP and LDL on microtitre wells, where either CRP or LDL was immobilized. LDL was modified by vortex-mixing, oxidation, or by lipolysis with phospholipase A(2) or with(More)
C-reactive protein (CRP) has been suggested to contribute to the development of atherosclerosis. We previously found binding of CRP to cholesterol in modified low density lipoprotein (LDL) particles. Here, we characterize the interaction between CRP and cholesterol in more detail. When lipids of native LDL were separated by thin-layer chromatography, CRP(More)
