  5. 5. The role of PPARalpha and growth hormone in hepatic lipid metaboism and atherosclerosis

    University dissertation from Diabetes and cardiovascular disease - genetic epidemiology

    Author : Anna Ljungberg; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2006]

    Abstract : Dyslipidemia mainly results from oversecretion of apoB-containing lipoproteins from theliver and is one of the most important risk factors for the development of atherosclerosis.Growth hormone (GH) plays a key role in the regulation of lipoprotein metabolism and thus,disturbances in GH secretion are associated with dyslipidemia and cardiovascular disease.
