Other enzymes include paraoxonase, which is thought to protect against peroxidation, and phospholipase A2 that may incite inflammation.
In addition, proteins involved in regulating HDL function, apolipoprotein A-I (apoA-I), paraoxonase 1 and 3, and platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase were measured.

Subsequent research from Haley's group showed that veterans suffering from Gulf War syndrome also were born with lower levels of a protective blood enzyme called paraoxonase, which usually fights off the toxins found in sarin.
32) During three weeks of moderate alcohol consumption, an increase in apo A-I is followed by an increase in HDL cholesterol, then by an increase in paraoxonase (PON) activity.
