Particle size determines the specificity of apolipoprotein E-containing triglyceride-rich emulsions for the LDL receptor versus hepatic remnant receptor in vivo.

Abstract

Apolipoprotein E (apoE) is an important determinant for the uptake of triglyceride-rich emulsions and lipoproteins by the liver, and exerts affinity for both the LDL receptor (LDLr) and a distinct liver-specific recognition site. Our current aim was to assess the mechanism underlying the receptor-specificity of apoE-carrying lipoproteins. Triglyceride-rich… (More)
