Transfer of phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine and sphingomyelin from low- and high-density lipoprotein to human platelets.

Following a 1 h incubation of human platelets with low-density lipoprotein (LDL) labelled in the apoprotein fraction (125I-apoB) or in phospholipid fractions [14C-labelled phosphatidylcholine (PC), phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) or sphingomyelin (SM)], the percentage of total 14C associated with the cells was about 3-fold higher than the percentage of 125I… CONTINUE READING
