The plasma cholesteryl ester-transfer protein (CETP, Mr 74,000) promotes exchange of both neutral lipids and phospholipids (phosphatidylcholine, PC) between lipoproteins. To investigate the mechanism of facilitated lipid transfer, CETP was incubated with unilamellar egg PC vesicles containing small amounts of cholesteryl ester (CE) or triglyceride, and then analyzed by gel filtration chromatography. There was rapid transfer of radiolabeled CE or triglyceride and PC from vesicles to CETP. The… CONTINUE READING
