Control of angiogenesis by AIBP-mediated cholesterol efflux.
San Diego, United States. In Nature, Jul 2013
To prevent cholesterol overload, ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters mediate cholesterol efflux from the cells to apolipoprotein A-I (apoA-I) and the apoA-I-containing high-density lipoprotein (HDL).
High-density lipoprotein function, dysfunction, and reverse cholesterol transport.
New York City, United States. In Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol, Dec 2012
Raising HDL levels in animal models by infusion or overexpression of apolipoprotein A-I has shown clear vascular improvements, such as delayed atherosclerotic lesion progression and accelerated lesion regression, along with increased reverse cholesterol transport.
Lipid-related markers and cardiovascular disease prediction.
In Jama, Jul 2012
OBJECTIVE: To determine whether adding information on apolipoprotein B and apolipoprotein A-I, lipoprotein(a), or lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 to total cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) improves cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk prediction.
