Apolipoprotein M (ApoM) is a novel apolipoprotein mainly present in high-density lipoprotein (HDL) (1,2). It belongs to the lipocalin protein superfamily and may bind a small but so far unknown lipophilic ligand. It is secreted without cleavage of its hydrophobic signal peptide, which probably anchors ApoM in the phospholipid moiety of plasma lipoproteins. Recent studies suggest that ApoM may affect HDL metabolism and have anti-atherogenic functions (2), including possible mechanisms of increased formation of pre-ss HDL, enhanced cholesterol mobilization from foam cells, and increased antioxidant properties (1). In addition to hepatocytes, ApoM is highly expressed in kidney proximal tubule cells (2).
