Expression of mouse acute-phase (SAA1.1) and constitutive (SAA4) serum amyloid A isotypes: influence on lipoprotein profiles.


The serum amyloid A (SAA) family of proteins consists of inducible acute-phase members and a constitutive member that are minor apolipoproteins of normal high density lipoprotein (HDL). During inflammation, HDL cholesterol and apolipoprotein A-I (apoA-I) protein are decreased, and these changes are thought to be partly related to the increase in acute-phase… (More)
