APOE p.Leu167del mutation in familial hypercholesterolemia.
Montréal, Canada. In Atherosclerosis, 31 Dec 2013
BACKGROUND: Autosomal dominant hypercholesterolemia (ADH) is caused by mutations in the low density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR), its ligand apoB (APOB) or proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) genes.
The APOBEC3 family of retroelement restriction factors.
Minneapolis, United States. In Curr Top Microbiol Immunol, Dec 2012
Ensuing studies on the apolipoprotein B mRNA-editing enzyme catalytic polypeptide-like 3 (APOBEC3) restriction factors have uncovered a broad-spectrum innate defense network that suppresses the replication of numerous endogenous and exogenous DNA-based parasites.
Circulating biomarkers for predicting cardiovascular disease risk; a systematic review and comprehensive overview of meta-analyses.
Utrecht, Netherlands. In Plos One, Dec 2012
Markers for primary cardiovascular events include, from high to low result: C-reactive protein, fibrinogen, cholesterol, apolipoprotein B, the apolipoprotein A/apolipoprotein B ratio, high density lipoprotein, and vitamin D. Markers for secondary cardiovascular events include, from high to low result: cardiac troponins I and T, C-reactive protein, serum creatinine, and cystatin C. For primary stroke, fibrinogen and serum uric acid are strong risk markers.
Role of the gut in lipid homeostasis.
Saint Louis, United States. In Physiol Rev, Jul 2012
We review the pathways and genetic regulation of chylomicron assembly, the role of dominant restriction points such as microsomal triglyceride transfer protein and apolipoprotein B, and the role of CD36, l-FABP, and other proteins in formation of the prechylomicron complex.
Lipid-related markers and cardiovascular disease prediction.
In Jama, Jul 2012
OBJECTIVE: To determine whether adding information on apolipoprotein B and apolipoprotein A-I, lipoprotein(a), or lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 to total cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) improves cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk prediction.
