Apo A1 (Apolipoprotein A1) is synthesized in the liver and small intestine, and is regulated by the dietary intake of lipids. It is the major constituent of human high density lipoproteins (HDL) and plays an important role in metabolic and transport function of lipoproteins of the serum. It is regulated by the dietary intake of lipids, and acts as an activator for the enzyme lecithin cholesterol acyl transferase which converts cholesterol to cholesteryl esters. During lypolysis in the peripheral tissue, Apo A1 can also play a role as an acceptor for surface components of very low density lipoproteins and chylomicrons. The gene encoding Apo A1 is found on chromosome 11.
