Human apoA-I increases macrophage foam cell derived PLTP activity without affecting the PLTP mass

Abstract

phospholipid transfer protein (PLTP) plays important roles in lipoprotein metabolism and atherosclerosis and is expressed by macrophages and macrophage foam cells (MFCs). The aim of the present study was to determine whether the major protein from HDL, apoA-I, affects PLTP derived from MFCs. as cell model we used human THP-1 monocytes incubated with… (More)
