ATP-binding cassette transporter A1 (ABCA1) is known to mediate cholesterol efflux to lipid-poor apolipoprotein A-I. In addition, ABCA1 has been shown to influence functions of the plasma membrane, such as endocytosis and phagocytosis. Here, we report that ABCA1 expression results in a significant redistribution of cholesterol and sphingomyelin from rafts(More)
ATP-binding cassette transporter A1 (ABCA1) mediates cholesterol efflux to lipid-poor apolipoprotein A-I (apoA-I) and generates HDL. Here, we demonstrate that ABCA1 also directly mediates the production of apoA-I free microparticles. In baby hamster kidney (BHK) cells and RAW macrophages, ABCA1 expression led to lipid efflux in the absence of apoA-I and(More)
