Plasma lipoproteins of free-ranging howling monkeys (Alouatta palliata).
Repository Usage Stats
1. Plasma lipids and lipoproteins of free-ranging howling monkeys from Costa Rica (Alouatta palliata), aged 5 months to 23 years, were characterized. 2. High density lipoproteins were lipid-rich, similar to HDL2 of human plasma. 3. Fatty acid compositions of major lipid classes of very low, low and high density lipoproteins differed among social groups, possibly due to both dietary and genetic factors. 4. Low and high density lipoprotein phospholipids were enriched in phosphatidylethanolamine. 5. Howler plasma cross reacted with antihuman apoA-I antibodies but not with antihuman LDL antibodies. 6. No dimeric form of apoA-II was present, unlike human apoA-II.
