A model structure for the heterodimer apoA-IMilano-apoA-II supports its peculiar susceptibility to proteolysis.

In this study, we propose a structure for the heterodimer between apolipoprotein A-I(Milano) and apolipoprotein A-II (apoA-I(M)-apoA-II) in a synthetic high-density lipoprotein (HDL) containing L-alpha-palmitoyloleoyl phosphatidylcholine. We applied bioinformatics/computational tools and procedures, such as molecular docking, molecular and essential… CONTINUE READING
