Lecithin–cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) is an enzyme that mediates the formation of cholesteryl ester. The determination of its activity and mass can help explore the pleiotropic effects of high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL). Therefore, LCAT is often used as a biomarker of HDL functionality. Creative BioMart Biomarker provides customers with high-quality LCAT analysis tests, which include the determination of its concentration and activity. Our LCAT testing service is not suitable for private medical diagnosis and testing.
|LCAT Concentration Measurement||We provide customers with enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay service for the measurement of LCAT concentration.|
|LCAT Activity Measurement||LCAT activity is determined using an exogenous apoA-I proteoliposome substrate.|
Sample Type: serum, plasma, tissue homogenate or other biological fluids.
Biomarker Application Area: cardiovascular diseases, such as coronary heart disease, and ovarian cancer.
* Perform three replicate tests on each sample, and include appropriate controls in each assay.
LCAT is a 63kDa enzyme protein mainly synthesized by the liver, which can convert free cholesterol into cholesteryl ester. After LCAT binds to lipoproteins, fatty acids are cleaved from the sn-2 position of phosphatidylcholine and transferred to the 3-β-hydroxyl group on the A-ring of cholesterol to form cholesteryl ester. Since cholesteryl ester has stronger hydrophobicity, it is sequestered into the hydrophobic core of lipoprotein particles. LCAT can promote the efflux of cholesterol from peripheral cells and affect the concentration gradient of free cholesterol between the plasma membrane and HDL particles. At the same time, CETP can affect the ability of HDL to bind cholesterol by transferring the cholesteryl ester formed by LCAT. In addition, LCAT affects the spontaneous back exchange of cholesterol from HDL to cells. The LCAT activity assay can measure the esterification of free cholesterol. At the same time, the measurement of LCAT activity may also help assess cardiovascular risk, and the regulation of LCAT activity is also one of the research directions in the treatment of coronary heart disease.
