We tried to confirm the antioxidative capability of lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) reported by Vohl et al. [Biochemistry (1999) 38, 5976-5981]. The enzyme solution protected LDL against oxidation. However, this protection was not due to LCAT enzyme, but to some unknown low-molecular-weight substance(s) in the solution; LCAT itself exerted little protective effect against LDL oxidation.
