Bulk Qty Available.

75% of Apo A in HDL is Apo AI. Levels of Apo AI are inversely related to the risk of coronary heart disease. Apo AI is also thought to activate LCAT (lecithin cholesterol acyl tranferase). In normal plasma, Apo AI levels range from 90-130 mg per 100 ml.

Purity: >=95% by SDS-PAGE

Prepared from plasma shown to be non reactive for HBsAg, anti-HCV, anti-HBc, and negative for anti-HIV 1 & 2 by FDA approved tests.
