Cholesteryl ester and phospholipid transfer activities were determined in plasmas from 14 vertebrates, and lipid transfer values were analyzed in the light of the known atherogenesis susceptibility of studied species. Whereas cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) and phospholipid transfer protein (PLTP) activities among vertebrate species were only measured in lipoprotein-deficient fractions in previous studies, both endogenous lipoprotein-dependent and endogenous lipoprotein-independent… CONTINUE READING
