Apolipoprotein A-I (apoA-I), the major protein of high density lipoproteins, facilitates reverse cholesterol transport from peripheral tissue to liver. To determine the structural motifs important for modulating the in vivo catabolism of human apoA-I (h-apoA-I), we generated carboxyl-terminal truncation mutants at residues 201 (apoA-I201), 217 (apoA-I217), and 226 (apoA-I226) by site-directed mutagenesis. ApoA-I was expressed in Escherichia coli as a fusion protein with the maltose binding… CONTINUE READING
