Could apolipoproteins be the biomarkers you are missing?

Discover Connections Could apolipoproteins be the biomarkers you are missing?

Apolipoproteins are involved in normal cholestrol trafficking, but we now know that they can have much broader impacts on our health when misregulated. From cancer to cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer's disease, apolipoproteins can serve as powerful biomarkers. Discover more about these fascinating proteins and see how they may be connected to your research.

What are Apolipoproteins?

What are Apolipoproteins?

Apolipoproteins are amphipathic molecules that, along with other proteins, surround oil-soluble fats and cholesterols to form lipoproteins that transport lipids through the circulatory and lymphatic systems. Apolipoproteins can also serve as enzyme cofactors, receptor ligands, and lipid transfer carriers that regulate the metabolism of lipoproteins and their uptake in tissues. Apolipoproteins are biomarkers for various conditions, including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and sepsis.

Apolipoproteins and Disease

Apolipoproteins are commonly known for their amphipathic properties and consequent role in lipid protein formation. But they also serve many other functions in the human body.

Why Multiplex?

Immunoassays allow sensitive and highly specific detection of analytes in a wide range of biological samples while traditional assays are limited in throughput. Bio-Plex® Mulitplex Immunoassay Systems let you detect and quantify up to 100 different biomarkers in a single well and thus provide a more complete picture of human health.
