    Hypertriglyceridemia has been extensively associated with hypertension. However, the mechanism behind it is poorly understood. A positive linkage signal between Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) and young-onset hypertension has been identified by us as the strongest among 18 candidate genes. Here we...

  • Increased lipase inhibition in uremia: identification of pre-beta-HDL as a major inhibitor in normal and uremic plasma. Cheung, Alfred K.; Parker, Charles J.; Ren, Kuishu; Iverius, Per-Henrik; Cheung, A K; Parker, C J; Ren, K; Iverius, P H // Kidney International;May1996, Vol. 49 Issue 5, p1360 

    The hypertriglyceridemia commonly observed in uremia has been attributed to an abnormally high inhibitor activity in plasma for lipoprotein lipase (LPL) and hepatic lipase (HL), both of which have a key role in lipoprotein metabolism. The purpose of this investigation was to establish a...

  • Lipoprotein metabolism in chronic renal insufficiency. Saland, Jeffrey M.; Ginsberg, Henry N. // Pediatric Nephrology;Aug2007, Vol. 22 Issue 8, p1095 

    Chronic renal insufficiency (CRI) is associated with a characteristic dyslipidemia. Findings in children with CRI largely parallel those in adults. Moderate hypertriglyceridemia, increased triglyceride-rich lipoproteins (TRL) and reduced high-density lipoproteins (HDL) are the most usual...

  • Effect of Exercise Timing on Postprandial Lipemia in Hypertriglyceridemic Men. Zhang, John Q.; Ji, Lisa L.; Nunez, Guadalupe; Feathers, Scott; Hart, Curtis L.; Wan Xiang Yao // Canadian Journal of Applied Physiology;Oct2004, Vol. 29 Issue 5, p590 

    We investigated the effect of exercise timing on attenuation of postprandial hyper-trigtyceridemia (PHTG) in individuals with hypertriglyceridemia (HTG). Subjects were 10 males (TG = 290.1 ± 28.5mg/dl). Each subject performed a control trial (Ctr), 12-hr premeal exercise trial (12-hr Pre),...

  • High-maintenance proteins and hypertriglyceridemia. Attie, Alan D. // Nature Genetics;Dec2007, Vol. 39 Issue 12, p1424 

    Lipoprotein lipase, the enzyme that hydrolyzes fatty acids from triglycerides carried by circulating lipoproteins, resides on the surface of the capillary endothelium. Analysis of a hypertriglyceridemic mutant mouse has now identified a protein, LMF1, that is critical for the transport of active...

  • Severe hypertriglyceridemia in a patient heterozygous for a lipoprotein lipase gene allele with two novel missense variants. Kassner, Ursula; Salewsky, Bastian; Wühle-Demuth, Marion; Szijarto, Istvan Andras; Grenkowitz, Thomas; Binner, Priska; März, Winfried; Steinhagen-Thiessen, Elisabeth; Demuth, Ilja // European Journal of Human Genetics;Sep2015, Vol. 23 Issue 9, p1259 

    Rare monogenic hyperchylomicronemia is caused by loss-of-function mutations in genes involved in the catabolism of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins, including the lipoprotein lipase gene, LPL. Clinical hallmarks of this condition are eruptive xanthomas, recurrent pancreatitis and abdominal pain....

  • Severe Hypertriglyceridemia due to a novel p.Q240H mutation in the Lipoprotein Lipase gene. Soto, Angela Ganan; McIntyre, Adam; Agrawal, Sungeeta; Bialo, Shara R.; Hegele, Robert A.; Boney, Charlotte M. // Lipids in Health & Disease;9/4/2015, Vol. 14 Issue 1, p1 

    Background: Lipoprotein Lipase (LPL) deficiency is a rare autosomal recessive disorder with a heterogeneous clinical presentation. Several mutations in the LPL gene have been identified to cause decreased activity of the enzyme. Findings: An 11-week-old, exclusively breastfed male presented with...

  • Circulating angiopoietin-like 4 links proteinuria with hypertriglyceridemia in nephrotic syndrome. Clement, Lionel C; Macé, Camille; Avila-Casado, Carmen; Joles, Jaap A; Kersten, Sander; Chugh, Sumant S // Nature Medicine;Jan2014, Vol. 20 Issue 1, p37 

    The molecular link between proteinuria and hyperlipidemia in nephrotic syndrome is not known. We show in the present study that plasma angiopoietin-like 4 (Angptl4) links proteinuria with hypertriglyceridemia through two negative feedback loops. In previous studies in a rat model that mimics...
