- ... Pathologic plasma lipoprotein cholesterol levels play a key role in the development and pathogenesis of human atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases. Plasma cholesterol homeostasis is regulated by genetic predispositions and environmental factors. Animal models showing aberrant plasma cholesterol levels are used for the identification and analysis of novel causative genes. Here, we searched for i ...

- ... Cholesterol removal from tissues into HDL depends on the activity of lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT; E.C. 18.104.22.168) that is associated with lower cardiovascular diseases risk. HDL cholesterol concentration and LCAT activity can be modulated by dietary fatty acids. Original data with substrate models have shown a positive effect of myristic acid (MA) on the esterification rate of choles ...
