Lipoprotein interactions with chromatic membranes as a novel marker for oxidative stress-related diseases Academic Article uri icon


  • Changes in the abundance and properties of blood lipoproteins are generally considered major causes for varied pathological conditions and diseases. Using novel chromatic biomimetic vesicle and cell assays, we present here for the first time evidence for significant changes in lipoproteins' interactions with artificial membranes. Specifically, we demonstrate significant differences in membrane binding between lipoproteins (both low-density lipoprotein [LDL] and high-density lipoprotein [HDL]) harvested from diabetic patients vs …
