And Danish researchers found no lower risk in people with HDL-raising versions of the lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase gene.
Serum total cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations and lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) activity were measured before randomization and at treatment end-point.
Studies on human plasma with vapor-phase cigarette smoke aldehydes reveal that acrolein inhibits the activity of lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase, a key enzyme in reverse cholesterol transport.
By sequencing 3 genes known to be key for the metabolism of HDL cholesterol [ATP-binding cassette, sub-family A (ABC1), member 1 (ABCA1), apolipoprotein A-I (APOA1), and lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT)] in DHS individuals with extremely low and high HDL concentrations, Hobbs and Victor found that the number of mutations was 5 times higher in the low-HDL group than in the high-HDL group.
