Protein Information
Function Mediates the binding, internalization, and catabolism of lipoprotein particles. It can serve as a ligand for the LDL (apo B/E) receptor and for the specific apo-E receptor (chylomicron remnant) of hepatic tissues.
Cellular Location Secreted.
Tissue Location Occurs in all lipoprotein fractions in plasma. It constitutes 10-20% of very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) and 1-2% of high density lipoproteins (HDL). APOE is produced in most organs. Significant quantities are produced in liver, brain, spleen, lung, adrenal, ovary, kidney and muscle

The apolipoproteins are family of amphipathic lipoproteins that plays a crucial role in lipid metabolism. In particular, apolipoprotein E (apo E) is a major component of high density lipoproteins (HDL) chylomicrons and very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL), which functions to remove excess cholesterol. Apo E mediates lipid metabolism and cholesterol homeostasis by binding to several hepatic lipoprotein receptors, such as low density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) and the LDLR-related protein (1). Apo E deficiency is linked to hyperlipoproteinemia type III; a genetic disorder characterized by elevated plasma cholesterol and triglyceride levels and accelerated coronary artery disease (2). Three major isoforms of Apo E (E2, E3, E4) has been identified, with E3 being the most common in human. E4 presence has been associated to increase probability of developing late-onset form of Alzheimer disease (3).
