The degradation of platelet-activating factor (PAF; 1-O-alkyl-2-acetyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine) in human plasma is brought about by a specific acetylhydrolase that is associated with low-density lipoprotein. In this study, the presence of a similar activity on high-density lipoprotein (HDL) of rat plasma has been demonstrated which is independent of… CONTINUE READING
