paraoxonase
(= PON1)
Human serum protein (45 kD glycoprotein) located on high density lipoprotein (HDL) and that has been implicated in detoxification of organophosphates and possibly preventing the oxidation of LDL. Mice lacking serum paraoxonase are susceptible to organophosphate toxicity and to atherosclerosis.
