OBJECTIVE: AIBP (apolipoprotein A-I binding protein) is an effective and selective regulator of lipid rafts modulating many metabolic pathways originating from the rafts, including inflammation. The mechanism of action was suggested to involve stimulation by AIBP of cholesterol efflux, depleting rafts of cholesterol, which is essential for lipid raft integrity. Here we describe a different mechanism contributing to the regulation of lipid rafts by AIBP. Approach and Results: We demonstrate that modulation of rafts by AIBP may not exclusively depend on the rate of cholesterol efflux or presence of the key regulator of the efflux, ABCA1 (ATP-binding cassette transporter A-I). AIBP interacted w..
