LDLs containing only apoB-100 were shown to bind to cell-surface receptors on fibroblasts, known as the LDL receptor (LDLR) (11).
ApoB gene expresses in two isoforms as ApoB-48 in chylomicron and ApoB-100 in the liver.
They include LDL ("bad") cholesterol that can clog arteries, HDL ("good") cholesterol that can help remove LDL molecules, and triglycerides, as well as ApoB-100, Lp-PLA-2 and others.
Due to the extremely cationic character, MPO can easily bind to the negatively charged structures, that is, bacteria, endothelial cells, cytokeratin-1, polyanionic matrix glycosaminoglycans, apolipoproteins apoA-1 and apoB-100, ceruloplasmin, [alpha]1-antitrypsin, and albumin [21].
