Regulation of Sterol Homeostasis

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine how people with high triglycerides metabolize and absorb bile acids, compounds made in the body from cholesterol.

This project has two objectives: A) To define the mechanism of impaired bile acid absorption in hypertriglyceridemia (specifically we will determine if the active or passive component of absorption is abnormal) and B) to determine the contribution of an alternative pathway of bile acid synthesis which begins with 27-hydroxylation of cholesterol. Because 27-hydroxylase is present in endothelial cells as well as liver, this pathway may play a role in removal of cholesterol from incipient atherosclerotic plaque.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition of elevated levels of TRIGLYCERIDES in the blood.

A fibric acid derivative used in the treatment of HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA TYPE III and severe HYPERTRIGLYCERIDEMIA. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p986)

Congenital disorders, usually autosomal recessive, characterized by severe generalized lack of ADIPOSE TISSUE, extreme INSULIN RESISTANCE, and HYPERTRIGLYCERIDEMIA.

A hypertriglyceridemia disorder, often with autosomal dominant inheritance. It is characterized by the persistent elevations of plasma TRIGLYCERIDES, endogenously synthesized and contained predominantly in VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS (pre-beta lipoproteins). In contrast, the plasma CHOLESTEROL and PHOSPHOLIPIDS usually remain within normal limits.
