  1. 1. Lipoproteomics : A New Approach to the Identification and Characterization of Proteins in LDL and HDL

    Author : Helen Karlsson; Mats Lindahl; Christer Tagesson; Pia Davidsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; LDL; HDL; Proteomik; Atheroskleros; Masspektrometri; 2-DE; Molecular medicine; Molekylär medicin;

    Abstract : A proteomic approach was applied to examine the protein composition of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) in humans. LDL and HDL were isolated by density gradient ultracentrifugation, and proteins were separated with twodimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE) and identified with peptide mass fingerprinting, using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry, and with amino acid sequencing using electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry.

  2. 2. Structure and function of the HDL receptor SR-BI : scavenger receptor class B type I

    Author : Magnus S.C. Johnson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : SR-BI; HDL; Cholesterol; Scavenger receptor; Apoptosis; Ovary; Gallbladder; Peroxisome;

    Abstract : Low plasma levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and high levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) are well-recognized risk factors for cardiovascular disease. The uptake and degradation of LDL cholesterol have been characterized in detail at the molecular level. Less is known about the metabolism and cellular uptake of HDL cholesterol. READ MORE

  3. 3. Apolipoprotein M – Studies of Structure and Function

    Author : Josefin Ahnström; Malmö Klinisk kemi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; signal peptidase; signal peptide; crystallization; Apolipoprotein; lipocalin; HDL; coronary heart disease;

    Abstract : Apolipoprotein M (apoM), a 25 kDa plasma protein, is found in all major lipoprotein classes, although the majority is found in high density lipoproteins (HDL). ApoM has been suggested to be involved in the formation of and adding to the antiatherogenic functions of HDL, but its function is still not completely known. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sensory, attitudinal, and contextual aspects of the meal : health implications and connections with risk factors for coronary heart disease and obesity

    Author : Erika Rapp [Nordin]; Åsa Öström; Inga-Britt Gustafsson; Judith Annett; Inger M. Jonsson; Mai-Lis Hellénius; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : Abdominal fat; Basic tastes; Bitterness; BMI; Coronary heart disease; Dietary fat content; Eating context; Food; HDL-cholesterol; Health promotion; Intervention; Meal; Perception; Preference; PROP; Beska; BMI; Bukfetma; Fetthalt; Grundsmaker; HDL-kolesterol; Hjärtinfarkt; Hälsa; Intervention; Mat; Måltidsmiljö; Preferens; PROP; Sensitivitet; Culinary Arts and Meal Science; Måltidskunskap; Måltidskunskap; Culinary Arts and Meal Science;

    Abstract : Det övergripande syftet var att undersöka mat- och måltidsrelaterade faktorer som bidragande orsak till övervikt och hjärt-kärlsjukdom.I en sensorisk studie jämfördes individer som insjuknat i hjärtinfarkt med en frisk kontroll-grupp med avseende på preferens för mat med hög respektive låg fetthalt, smakkänslighet för grundsmakerna (surt, beskt, salt, sött, umami och metalliskt) samt det beska ämnet 6-n-propylthiouracil (PROP).

  5. 5. Studies of hyperandrogenicity and the metabolic syndrome in premenopausal women

    Author : Fariba Baghaei; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : androgens; SHBG; HPA axis; abdominal obesity; insulin; HDL; metabolic syndrome; ovarian volume; PCOS; polymorphism; genetics; androgen receptor; estrogen receptor; aromatase;

    Abstract : An androgenic sex hormone profile appears to be a typical feature of the metabolic syndrome (MetS) and a powerful risk factor for the development of type 2 diabetes in women. The causes of relative hyperandrogenicity (HA) are not clearly defined. READ MORE
