Apo A4 synthesised in enterocytes, as well as other apoproteins, assimilates in high-density lipoprotein.
This combination of traits is highly suggestive that the transcript produces an apoprotein able to bind to a retinal-based chromophore to form a photopigment capable of absorbing light.

It has been speculated that such dramatic changes in LDL/HDL may not actually reflect achievement of desirable lipoprotein levels through altered secretion, but rather impaired synthesis of apoproteins. (10,11) Other reversible decreases in laboratory parameters (e.g.
The outer layer of lipoproteins carry labelling proteins called apolipoproteins (apoproteins).
Blood lipids, lipoproteins, apoproteins, and uric acid in men fed diets containing fructose or high-amylose cornstarch.
In many cases the apoproteins (without bound [Ca.sup.2+]) bind the targets by several orders of magnitude weaker than holo-proteins or do not bind significantly at all.
The apoproteins can be classified into two main groups: hydrophobic and amphipathic (having hydrophobic and hydrophilic aspects).
Cholesterol, lipoproteins , apoproteins and heart disease present status and future prospectus.
Second, although it is now recognized that the hydrophobic apoproteins SP-B and SP-C are required to create the lung lining film and for it to vary surface tension, (2) in most neonatal patients there is enough "extra" endogenous apoproteins SP-B/C to incorporate any exogenous phospholipids instilled into the lungs to significantly improve the function of the lining film.
