Apolipoproteins as “Drugs”: Current Status
Apolipoproteins are attractive molecules for a potential use in therapeutics. They are generally quite stable, capable of binding at the same time lipids and other chemicals, water soluble and in some cases presenting with a dominant positive or negative charge. In addition, some apolipoproteins can interact with cell receptors, either regulating cholesterol biosynthesis, or possibly cholesterol removal.
