Competitive inhibition of plasma cholesterol esterification by human high-density lipoprotein-subfraction 2.

Mixtures containing subfractions of human plasma high-density lipoproteins (HDL) and human lipoprotein-free plasma were incubated in vitro at 37 degrees C. Esterification of cholesterol was observed both in incubations containing HDL-subfraction 3 (HDL3) and in those containing HDL-subfraction 2 (HDL2). The implication that the lecithin: cholesterol… CONTINUE READING
