Chylomicron catabolism is known to be initiated by the enzyme lipoprotein lipase (triacylglycero-protein acylhydrolase, EC 3.1.1.34). Chylomicron remnants, produced by lipolysis, are rapidly taken up by the liver via an apolipoprotein E (apoE)-mediated, receptor-dependent process. The low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor-related protein (LRP) has been suggested as the potential apoE receptor. We have analyzed the binding of human chylomicrons to HepG2 cells in the absence and presence of… CONTINUE READING
