Phospholipid transfer protein (PLTP), also known as lipid transfer protein 2 (LTP-2), mediates a transfer of phospholipids between high-density lipoproteins (HDL). The molecular and macromolecular specificities of recombinant human PLTP were studied using a fluorometric assay based on the excimer fluorescence of pyrenyl lipids. To determine lipoprotein specificity of PLTP, donor very low density lipoproteins (VLDL), low-density lipoproteins (LDL), and HDL were labeled with 1-palmitoyl-2-[10-(1… CONTINUE READING
