  • Apolipoprotein (apo) E, via its receptor binding domain contained in residues 140-150, mediates hepatic and peripheral tissue binding of cholesterol-rich lipoproteins. Previously, we reported that a synthetic peptide representing a linear tandem repeat of amino acids 141-155, the 141-155 dimer, binds the low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor. To define the structural features essential for LDL receptor binding of the 141-155 dimer, a series of modified peptides were synthesized. The secondary… CONTINUE READING
