The Immunology of Serum Lipoproteins

  • Kenneth W. Walton
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 63)

Abstract

Human serum lipoproteins are effective antigens when used to immunize other species. Some human serum lipoproteins, in certain circumstances (see below) even give rise to isologous antisera. The immunological specificity of antisera to lipoproteins varies with the circumstances of immunization and the nature and mode of presentation of the lipoprotein antigen, but reactivity is invariably directed predominantly, if not exclusively, against the protein part of the molecule (apolipoprotein). Antisera may be directed against major or minor antigens.
