Molecular packing of high-density and low-density lipoprotein surface lipids and apolipoprotein A-I binding.

The surface pressure (pi)-molecular area (A) isotherms for monolayers of human high-density lipoprotein (HDL3) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) phospholipids and of mixed monolayers of these phospholipids with cholesterol spread at the air-water interface were used to deduce the likely molecular packing at the surfaces of HDL3 and LDL particles. LDL… CONTINUE READING
