Glycosylation of apoproteins of rat very low density lipoproteins during transit through the hepatic Golgi apparatus.

The glycosylation of apo very low density lipoproteins (apo-VLDL) in vivo was studied by following the incorporation of [14C]glucosamine into several groups of apoproteins of VLDL isolated from hepatic Golgi fractions and from serum of sucrose-fed, colchicine-treated rats. Simultaneous incorporation of [3H]leucine was used to quantitate the apoproteins… CONTINUE READING
