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.
