The binding of native rabbit beta-very low density lipoproteins (beta-VLDL) to the low density lipoprotein receptor-related protein (LRP) requires incubation with exogenous apolipoprotein (apo) E. Inclusion of a mixture of the C apolipoproteins in the incubation inhibits this binding. In the present study, the ability of the individual C apolipoproteins (C-I, C-II, and C-III) to block binding of beta-VLDL to the LRP was examined by measuring cholesteryl ester formation in mutant fibroblasts… CONTINUE READING
