    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...

    Lipoprotein lipase has long been known to hydrolyse triglycerides from triglycerides-rich lipoproteins. More recently, it has been shown to promote the binding of lipoproteins to various lipoprotein receptors. Evidence is also presented regarding the possible atherogenic role of lipoprotein...

    The effect of lipoprotein electrostatic properties on the catalytic regulation of hepatic lipase (HL) was investigated. Enrichment of serum or very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) with oleic acid increased lipoprotein negative charge and stimulated lipid hydrolysis by HL. Similarly, enrichment of...
