Human ABCA7 supports apolipoprotein-mediated release of cellular cholesterol and phospholipid to generate high density lipoprotein.

Apolipoprotein-mediated release of cellular cholesterol and phospholipids was induced in HEK293 cells by expressing human ATP-binding cassette transporter A7 (ABCA7) and ABC transporter A1 (ABCA1) proteins, whether transient or stable, to generate cholesterol-rich high density lipoprotein (HDL). Green fluorescent protein (GFP) attached at their C termini… CONTINUE READING
