High density lipoprotein (HDL) is rich in polyunsaturated phospholipids that are sensitive to oxidation. However, the effect of apolipoprotein A-I and paraoxonase-1 (PON-1) on phosphatidylcholine oxidation products has not been identified. We subjected native HDL, trypsinized HDL, and HDL lipid suspensions to oxidation by the peroxynitrite donor,(More)
Complete lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) deficiency is a rare cause of severe hypoalphalipoproteinemia, but the affected subjects are surprisingly not particularly prone to premature coronary heart disease. We studied oxidative stress in lcat-/- mice and their cross-breed with apolipoprotein-E knockout mice (apoE-/-xlcat-/-) by measuring(More)
Paraoxonase (PON-1) is a high-density lipoprotein (HDL)-bound enzyme with activity toward multiple substrates. It hydrolyzes organic phosphate and aromatic carboxylic acid esters. It also inhibits accumulation of oxidized phospholipids in plasma lipoproteins by a mechanism yet to be determined. Therefore, we subjected apolipoprotein A-I proteoliposomes(More)
OBJECTIVE High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is postulated to protect against the development of atherosclerosis, in part, by inhibiting the oxidation of low density lipoprotein (LDL) in the sub-endothelial space and thus inhibiting activation of the endothelium. The HDL-associated enzyme, paraoxonase-1, is proposed to be a major protective factor. However, HDL(More)
Preparedness is the main criteria for immediate response for any emergency response provider (ERP) and decision support system. Emergency Response System can be either for fire emergency response system, or police station emergency response system and healthcare emergency response system. Emergency decision support system is imperative for the reduction of(More)
