APOA5

(redirected from RAP3)

APOA5

A gene on chromosome 11q23 that encodes apolipoprotein A-V, a minor apolipoprotein mainly associated with high-density lipoprotein (HDL), less so with VLDL and chylomicrons. It is an important determinant of plasma triglyceride (TG) levels, both stimulating TG hydrolysis by apo-CII lipoprotein lipase and inhibiting VLDL-TG production.
