Specific conditions for enhancement of lipoprotein lipase activity by platelets

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Homogenates of human blood platelets, but not of red blood cells, have been found to stimulate lipoprotein lipase activity only when assayed against an emulsified triglyceride substrate sonicated for a short period of time. The degree of stimulation was inversely related to the time of sonication of the substrate. Using chylomicrons as substrate no stimulation of lipoprotein lipase activity by platelet homogenate was seen.
