Apolipoprotein(a) Inhibits In Vitro Tube Formation in Endothelial Cells: Identification of Roles for Kringle V and the Plasminogen Activation System

Abstract

Elevated plasma concentrations of lipoprotein(a) are associated with increased risk for atherothrombotic diseases. Apolipoprotein(a), the unique glycoprotein component of lipoprotein(a), is characterized by the presence of multiple kringle domains, and shares a high degree of sequence homology with the serine protease zymogen plasminogen. It has been shown… (More)
