We have found transition metals tightly bound to apolipoprotein A-I-containing lipoproteins [Lp(A-I)] isolated by selected affinity immunosorption from human serum. Prominent among the metal ions detected were iron and copper. By immunoblotting the proteins of Lp(A-I), we detected both transferrin and ceruloplasmin. The transferrin-containing Lp(A-I) particles, isolated by selected affinity immunosorption against transferrin, were larger (mean diameter of 14.2 nm) and had a higher protein… CONTINUE READING
