The apolipoprotein E2 (Lys146→Gln) variant is associated with a dominant form of familial dysbetalipoproteinemia. Heterozygous carriers of this variant have elevated levels of plasma triglycerides, cholesterol, and apolipoprotein E (apoE). It was hypothesized that the high amounts of triglycerides in the very low density lipoprotein (VLDL)...

The effect of monocyte/macrophage-derived wild-type mouse apolipoprotein E (apoE), human apoE3-Leiden, and human apoE2 on serum cholesterol levels and the development of atherosclerosis in apoE-deficient (apoe-/-) mice was investigated by using bone marrow transplantation (BMT). At 4 weeks after BMT, murine apoe+/+ bone marrow reduced serum...

To investigate the quantitative requirement for apolipoprotein (apo) E in the clearance of lipoproteins via the non-low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor mediated pathway, human APOE was overexpressed at various levels in the livers of mice deficient for both the endogenous Apoe and Ldlr genes (Apoe-/- · Ldlr-/-) using adenovirus-mediated gene...

ApoE-deficient mice on low fat diet show hepatic triglyceride accumulation and a reduced very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) triglyceride production rate. To establish the role of apoE in the regulation of hepatic VLDL production, the human APOE3 gene was introduced into apoE-deficient mice by cross-breeding with APOE3 transgenics (APOE3/apoe-/-...

Apolipoprotein (APO) E*3-Leiden mice with impaired chylomicron and VLDL (very low density lipoprotein) remnant metabolism display hyperlipidaemia and atherosclerosis. In the present study, these mice were used for testing the hypolipidaemic effect of two marketed agents, lovastatin (CAS 75330-75-5) and gemfibrozil (CAS 25812-30-0) as well as a...

To study the function of plasma phospholipid transfer protein (PLTP) in vivo, a liver directed adenoviral gene transfer system was used to overexpress human PLTP in mice. For the experiments, two strains of mice, wild type (C57/B1) and mice transgenic for the human apoA-I gene (HuApoA- ITg), were utilized. Five days after injection of the...

In the present study it was investigated whether apolipoprotein (apoE) can inhibit the lipoprotein lipase (LPL)-mediated hydrolysis of very-low-density-lipoprotein (VLDL) triacylglycerols (TAGs). Previous studies have suggested such an inhibitory role for apoE by using as a substrate for LPL either plasma VLDL or artificial TAG emulsions. To...

Transgenic mice overexpressing human APOE*3Leiden are highly susceptible to diet-induced hyperlipoproteinemia and atherosclerosis due to a defect in hepatic uptake of remnant lipoproteins. In addition to the human APOE*3Leiden gene, these mice carry the human APOC1 gene (APOE*3Leiden- C1). To investigate the possible effect of simultaneous...
