Lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase

LCAT, lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase
This gene encodes the extracellular cholesterol esterifying enzyme, lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase. The esterification of cholesterol is required for cholesterol transport. Mutations in this gene have been found to cause fish-eye disease as well as LCAT deficiency. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

We sequenced the candidate genes for HTG (LPL, APOC2, APOA5, GPIHBP1, LMF1) and HDL deficiency (LCAT, ABCA1 and APOA1), analyzed HDL subpopulations, measured cholesterol efflux capacity (CEC) of sera and constructed a model of the mutant apoA-I.

We report a family with a rare genetic disorder arising out of mutation in the gene that encodes for the enzyme lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT).
Implications of reverse cholesterol transport: recent studies.
Wagner et al., Louisville, United States. In Clin Chim Acta, Feb 2015
CONCLUSIONS: Mutation studies of ABCA1, LCAT and SR-B1 genes in humans showed expected variations in HDLC but little association with ASCVD and there was no significant association between HDLC and ASCVD in Mendelian randomization studies.

HDL biogenesis, remodeling, and catabolism.
Chroni et al., Boston, United States. In Handb Exp Pharmacol, 2014
The biogenesis of HDL initially requires functional interaction of apoA-I with the ATP-binding cassette transporter A1 (ABCA1) and subsequently interactions of the lipidated apoA-I forms with lecithin/cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT).
High-density lipoprotein metabolism, composition, function, and deficiency.
Asztalos et al., Boston, United States. In Curr Opin Lipidol, 2014
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To examine the recent advances in our knowledge of HDL metabolism, composition, function, and coronary heart disease (CHD), as well as marked HDL deficiency states because of mutations in the apolipoprotein (apo) A-I, ATP-binding cassette transfer protein A1 and lecithin cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) gene loci.
HDL genetic defects.
Jain et al., London, United Kingdom. In Curr Pharm Des, 2013
Tangier disease and Fish Eye disease are caused by mutations in the ATP binding cassette A1 (ABCA1), a transport protein, and lecithin cholesterol acyl transferase (LCAT), an enzyme, involved in the esterification of cholesterol, respectively.

Hepatocyte nuclear factor-1alpha is an essential regulator of bile acid and plasma cholesterol metabolism.
Stoffel et al., New York City, United States. In Nat Genet, 2001
This is most likely due to reduced activity of the HDL-catabolic enzyme hepatic lipase (Lipc) and increased expression of HDL-cholesterol esterifying enzyme lecithin:cholesterol acyl transferase (Lcat).

In contrast to two other monogenic HDL deficiencies in which defects in the plasma proteins apoA-I and LCAT interfere primarily with the formation of HDL (refs 7-10), TD shows a defect in cell signalling and the mobilization of cellular lipids.
Cloning and sequencing of human cholesteryl ester transfer protein cDNA.
Lawn et al., In Nature, 1987
Catalysed steps of this pathway are believed to include an efflux from peripheral cells, which generates a diffusion gradient between these membranes and extracellular fluid; esterification of this cholesterol by lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) (phosphatidylcholine-sterol acyltransferase) acting on species of high-density lipoproteins; transfer of the cholesteryl esters formed (largely to low- and very low-density lipoproteins) (LDL and VLDL) by a cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP); and removal of these lipoproteins, together with their cholesteryl ester content, by the liver through receptor-mediated and nonspecific endocytosis.
