Apolipoprotein B

Determining the true risk of CVD by measuring all potentially atherogenic lipoproteins

Clinical Significance

Apo B shows atherogenic signs and is therefore useful for the evaluation of coronary risk.

The test is undertaken:

 

Apolipoproteins interact with a series of enzymes and tissue receptors and are therefore responsible for further metabolism of the micelle. The B apolipoproteins are the main form of protein found in the low density lipoproteins (LDL). Apo B is the main cholesterol carrying protein in the blood and is the ligand concerned with the uptake of cholesterol into the cells by the LDL – receptor pathway.
