  1. 1. Endogenous and exogenous factors affecting lipoprotein lipase activity

    Author : Mikael Larsson; Gunilla Olivecrona; Aivar Lookene; Ira Tabas; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; LPL; APOC1; APOC2; APOC3; ANGPTL4; enzyme inactivation; lipoprotein metabolism; triglycerides; fatty acids; hypertriglyceridemia; CVD; small molecule screening; structure-activity relationship; cardiovascular disease; hjärt- och kärlforskning;

    Abstract : Individuals with high levels of plasma triglycerides are at high risk to develop cardiovascular disease (CVD), currently one of the major causes of death worldwide. Recent epidemiological studies show that loss-of-function mutations in the APOC3 gene lower plasma triglyceride levels and reduce the incidence of coronary artery disease. READ MORE

  2. 2. RNA-based Prognostic Markers in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

    Author : Marie Sevov; Richard Rosenquist; Mahmoud Mansouri; Denis Alexander; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chronic lymphocytic leukemia; prognostic markers; RNA-based markers; LPL; Molecular medicine genetics and pathology ; Molekylär medicin genetik och patologi ; Haematology; Hematologi; Medical Science; Medicinsk vetenskap;

    Abstract : Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is a heterogeneous disease where a significant proportion of patients will develop an aggressive disease. Today, the mutational status of the immunoglobulin heavy variable (IGHV) genes is one of the strongest prognostic markers in CLL, where unmutated IGHV genes correlate with poor outcome. READ MORE

  3. 3. Lipoprotein lipase in hemodialysis patients and healthy controls : effects of heparin

    Author : Birgit Näsström; Per-Ola Attman; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : dalteparin; dialysis; lipoprotein metabolism; LMWH; LPL; triglycerides; UFH; uremia; medicinsk och fysiologisk kemi; Medical and Physiological Chemistry;

    Abstract : Mortality from cardiovascular disease in patients on chronic hemodialysis (HD) is 10 to 20 times greater than in the general population. One major risk factor is renal dyslipidemia, characterised by an impaired catabolism of triglyceride (TG)-rich lipoproteins with accumulation of atherogenic remnant particles. READ MORE

  4. 4. Genetics of type 2 diabetes and the metabolic syndrome

    Author : Mia Klannemark; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; diabetology; secreting systems; Endocrinology; PDE3B; PPARG; LPL; metabolic syndrome; diabetes; genetic; HSL; UCP2; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi;

    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes and the metabolic syndrome are highly prevalent disorders with severe complications such as cardiovascular disease. The aetiology of type 2 diabetes and the metabolic syndrome is not known, but the interaction between genetic factors and environmental triggers is important. READ MORE

  5. 5. Retention of atherogenic lipoproteins in atherogenesis

    Author : Maria Gustafsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : apolipoprotein B; atherosclerosis; LDL; LpL; proteoglycans; retention; sPLA2;

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis is the most common cause of death in the industrialized world. The diseaseis characterized by lipid accumulation and inflammation in the arterial wall, which may leadto obstruction of the blood flow. READ MORE
