The carbohydrate composition of apolipoprotein (apo) B100, particularly its degree of sialylation, may contribute to the atherogenic properties of low-density lipoprotein (LDL). We analyzed LDL apoB100 glycans derived from normolipidemic, hypercholesterolemic, and hypertriglyceridemic diabetic subjects. Using exoglycosidase carbohydrate sequencing and… CONTINUE READING
