What is Apolipoprotein A-II assay used for?
Apolipoproteins are proteins on the surface of the lipoprotein complex that bind to specific enzymes or transport proteins on the cell membranes. This directs the lipoprotein to the proper site of metabolism. APO A-II is mainly created in the liver and modulates lipoprotein lipase and hepatic triglyceride lipase. It also acts as a co-factor for Lecithin Cholesterol Acyltransferase which is involved in lipoprotein processing.
Apolipoprotein A-II is a major constituent of High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) particles and plays an important role in the reverse cholesterol transport and lipid metabolism. The APO A-II test can be used as an aid in assessing the risk of CVD.
