The N-terminal globular domain and the first class A amphipathic helix of apolipoprotein A-I are important for lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase activation and the maturation of high density lipoprotein in vivo.

Abstract

To investigate the role of the N terminus of apolipoprotein A-I (apoA-I) in the maturation of high density lipoproteins (HDL), two N-terminal mutants with deletions of residues 1-43 and 1-65 (referred to as Delta 1-43 and Delta 1-65 apoA-I) were studied. In vitro, these deletions had little effect on cellular cholesterol efflux from macrophages but LCAT… (More)
