Mechanisms of obesity and related pathologies: role of apolipoprotein E in the development of obesity.

Abstract

Apolipoprotein E is a polymorphic glycoprotein in humans with a molecular mass of 34.5 kDa. It is a component of chylomicron remnants, very low density lipoprotein, low density lipoprotein and high density lipoprotein, and is primarily responsible for maintaining plasma lipid homeostasis. In addition to these well-documented functions, recent studies in… (More)
