Pathways for the incorporation of esterified cholesterol into very low density and low density lipoproteins in plasma incubated in vitro.


In vitro incubations of human or pig plasma containing a tracer amount of [3H]cholesterol have been performed to determine which lipoprotein fractions are the immediate recipients of the esterified cholesterol formed in the reaction catalysed by lecithin: cholesterol acyltransferase. In pig plasma, which is deficient in activity of the protein which… (More)
