The effect of human plasma phospholipid transfer protein (PLTP) on the particle size distribution of human high density lipoprotein (HDL) was studied by incubating human HDL3 (particle diameter, 8.7 nm) together with PLTP in vitro. Incubation of HDL3 with highly purified preparations of PLTP, devoid of cholesterol ester transfer protein (CETP), induced a conversion of the homogenous population of HDL particles into two main populations of particles, one larger, particle diameter 10.9 nm, and… CONTINUE READING
