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.

Keywords: apolipophorin, lipophorin, lipoproteins, lipids, manduca sexta, locusta migratoria
