Apo CIII contains 79 amino acid residues. The m.w. is 8.7 kDa (Brewer et al., 1974).
It may inhibit the activation of lipoprotein lipase by apo CIII. Apo CIII is a constituent of both apoB- and apoAI-containing lipoproteins in the circulation. Apo CIII plays a pivotal role in regulating the plasma metabolism of VLDL, IDL, and LDL, primarily by inhibiting receptor-mediated uptake of these lipoproteins by the liver (Sehayek and Eisenberg 1991, Aalto-Setala et al., 1992, Zheng et al., 2007)
