A truncated apolipoprotein (apo) A-I with a molecular weight (M(r)) of 26 kDa was first isolated from the plasma high density lipoproteins of an atypical Japanese eel (Anguilla japonica). Interestingly, this eel contained a very small amount of intact apoA-I (M(r)28 kDa) in the plasma, although serine protease inhibitors were present throughout the plasma… CONTINUE READING
