Abstract (en)

[origin: FR2769630A1] Use of at least one protein of the family of elicitins to capture and fix lipid molecules in vitro or in plants, is new. An Independent claim is also included for the use of at least one elicitin to produce a drug capable of capturing and fixing lipids. Use of elicitins to transfer the lipid molecules is claimed. They can facilitate transfer in a medium containing structures (micelles and/or lipid bilayers in liposomes or natural or artificial membranes) which have donor or acceptor functions, or can be used in several stages with the donor structure in the first medium, separation of the fixed lipid molecules, and addition to the medium containing the acceptor. Elicitins can be used to produce hypolipidemic drugs, preferably hypocholesterolemic.
