In Vivo Lipoprotein Binding Assay Of The Insect Exchangeable Apolipoprotein, Apolipophorin-Iii
Abstract:An original method for the study of the lipid binding properties of exchangeable apolipoproteins is reported. Binding of Locusta migratoria apolipophorin-III to Manduca sexta low-density lipophorin (LDLp) and high-density lipophorin (HDLp) was studied in vivo. This assay could be used useful to investigate the effect of mutations in the lipid binding properties of exchangeable apolipoproteins under physiological conditions.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
