    Ras-GTP imaging studies using the Ras-binding domain (RBD) of the Ras effector c-Raf as a reporter for overexpressed Ras have produced discrepant results about the possible activation of Ras at the Golgi apparatus. We report that RBD oligomerization provides probes for visualization of...

    Estrogen effects on triglyceride metabolism in analbuminemic rats. Background. Triglyceride (TG) levels are normally lower in female rats, while the opposite is the case in the Nagase analbuminemic rats (NAR). Increased TG levels in normal males are caused by a testosterone-mediated decrease in...

    A 40-day-infant having milky serum, eruptive xanthomas, hepatosplenomegaly, lipemia retinalis, high cholesterol and triglyceride, was found to have lipoprotein lipase (LPL) deficiency on genetic workup. Triglyceride decreased with dietary fat restriction, medium chain triglyceride and fibrates....

    Objective:We have recently shown the in vivo anti-obesity effects of sodium tungstate. In this study, we investigate the in vitro effects of sodium tungstate on adipocyte differentiation and function.Methods:3T3-F442A cells were allowed to differentiate in the presence of sodium tungstate, and...

    Drosophila melanogaster has recently emerged as a useful model system in which to study the genetic basis of regulation of fat storage. One of the most frequently used methods for evaluating the levels of stored fat (triglycerides) in flies is a coupled colorimetric assay available as a kit from...

  • Familial lipoprotein lipase deficiency caused by known (G188E) and novel (W394X) LPL gene mutations. Hooper, A. J.; Crawford, G. M.; Brisbane, J. M.; Robertson, K.; Watts, G. F.; van Bockxmeer, F. M.; Burnett, J. R. // Annals of Clinical Biochemistry;Jan2008, Vol. 45 Issue 1, p102 

    Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) is the key enzyme in the catabolism of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins in the circulation. Familial LPL deficiency is characterized by hypertriglyceridaemia and absence of LPL activity. We report a case of LPL deficiency in a 43-year-old woman, who initially presented in...

    Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) is a key factor determining the clearance of triglycerides from the circulation. The enzyme activity is tissue-specifically regulated by insulin, but it is not clear yet how insulin regulates the total LPL activity in the circulation. To answer such question, we measured...

  • 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...
