Lipoprotein(a) is comprised of an LDL-like particle with a second protein, called apolipoprotein(a), or apo(a), coiled around it.
Lp(a), when present, is attached to apo-B-100 by a disulfide bond
Lp(a) is very strongly associated with myocardial infarction and is sometimes called the “little rascal”.
In 40% population, there is no detectable level of Lp(a) in serum.
In 20% of population, the Lp(a) concentration in blood is more than 30 mg/dL; and these persons are susceptible for heart attack at a younger age.
Lp(a) is associated with heart attacks at the age of 30 or 40 years
