The adsorption of a number of lipoproteins, i.e., low-density lipoprotein (LDL), oxidized LDL (oxLDL), high-density lipoprotein (HDL), and lipoprotein (a), at silica and methylated silica as well as at the latter surface modified through adsorption of proteoheparan sulfate, was investigated with in situ ellipsometry at close to physiological conditions. It was found that LDL, oxLDL, HDL, and lipoprotein (a) all adsorbed more extensively at silica than at methylated silica. Upon exposure of the… CONTINUE READING
