ApoA1 is a major protein component of high density lipoproteins (HDL) which is associated with reversed cholesterol transport, lipid/cholesterol binding, lecithin/cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) activation and specific receptors binding. It is synthesized in the liver and small intestine. Defects of ApoA1 cause low HDL level and systemic non-neuropathic amyloidosis. Serum concentration of ApoA1 is inversely related to the risk of developing atherosclerosis. This antibody was generated against the C-terminal region of human ApoA1.
