  3. 3. Lipoamidase

    Author : Lennart Nilsson; Örjan Zetterqvist; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Lipoamidase, an enzyme which removes lipoic acid from the e-amino group of a lysine residue in 2-oxoacid dehydrogenase complexes, has been measured in human serum and breast milk, and in different rat tissues.

  4. 4. Regulation of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 : role of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins, fatty acids and fibrate compounds

    Author : Lennart Nilsson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : plasminogen activator inhibitor-1; coronary heart disease; endothelial cells; very low density lipoprotein VLDL ; 4G 5G polymorphism; VLDL response element; fibrate compounds; VLDL receptor; stroke;

    Abstract : Impaired fibrinolytic function secondary to elevated plasma plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) activity is associated with atherothrombotic disease, in particular coronary heart disease. Both environmental and genetic factors contribute to determine plasma PAI-1 levels and PAI-1 production in vivo. READ MORE
